Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-1214) Searches done with an empty baseDN are not accepted, except for the rootDSE
Date Fri, 26 Feb 2010 13:32:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1214?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12838864#action_12838864
] 

Alex Karasulu commented on DIRSERVER-1214:
------------------------------------------

This really does not make protocol sense to me. Why? Well because the descent from the root
DSE may not be one level down.  Let me explain further: partitions can have a suffixes with
more than one RDN component like dc=example,dc=com.  When conducting search with anything
other than base object scope this may become a problem since the returned set of entries will
be disjoint (some will not have parents returned below the search base).  This might mess
up some clients.

I think this issue should be closed and forgotten but we can implement it if need be. It's
not that hard. However again it does not make protocol sense to me.

> We can't do a search with an empty baseDN, when it's not specifically a rootDSE search
(ie, (objectClass=*) and scope=OBJECT).
> We should consider that such a search is spreaded on all the partitions.
> This is not easy to implement without the nested partitions, as the current existing
partitions are potentially stoed in different backends.
