Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-1214) Searches done with an empty baseDN are not accepted, except for the rootDSE
Date Fri, 26 Feb 2010 13:52:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1214?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12838870#action_12838870
] 

Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSERVER-1214:
----------------------------------------------

RFC 4512, par. 5.1 stipulates that "The root DSE SHALL NOT be included if the client performs
a subtree search starting from the root." and that implicitely implies that you *can* do a
search with an empty baseDN

AFAICT, there is nothing specific about ONE_LEVEL search based on rootDSE, and NamingContexts,
in the RFC. My interpretation is :
The ONE level should start on NamingContext, not on the RDN forming their DN (ie, if a NamingContext
is dc=example,dc=com, we should start at dc=example, not at dc=com).

> 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.
