I guess that Alex wanted to write 'cn=oersoy+ou=users'. 
'cn=oersory,ou=users' is not a RDN, it's a DN composed of two RDNs. 
Basically, DN = (RDN)*.

The rigthmost part of a DN is, well, the rightmost part. It MAY be the 
root of a partition, if it has be declared as so in the server.xml file 
(and then it can't be split).
