There is a Domino server that houses information in its NAB that is 
important to our customer.  I can retrieve data using perl Net::LDAP 
calls, as well as with C API calls.  I haven't tried JNDI but I 
*suspect* similar results.

As I was trying out the LDAP Studio on other LDAP servers, I pointed it 
to the Domino box to see if it would work.  When I tried to expand the 
baseDn I got the following error "Error while reading entry Empty 
Attribute is not allowed!".

I don't profess the virtues of Domino's (or ADS's) compliance with LDAP 
schema standards, I am just tasked in dealing with them :)

I understand the error above but I need more information to track down 
the entry(ies) causing that error.  It would be helpful if there was a 
way to get more details from LDAP Studio so that I could discover the 
problem with the directory and remove it, hence my post.

Incidentally, I just tried this on ADS and I get a "Error while reading 
entry, Unprocessed Continuation Reference(s)" error when trying to 
expand its baseDn.  That's probably better saved for a separate thread...

Thanks - Tod
