Subject Proper creation of partitions
Date Fri, 15 Oct 2010 14:20:47 GMT
I'm not quite sure I understand when I should create a partition.

My end goal is to have two branches (ou=people,dc=example,dc=org and 

My first thought was to create a single dc=example,dc=org partition. 
Following the directions for adding a new partition[1], the next step 
would be to add an appropriate context entry to the Root DSE.  The 
problem is that I'm not sure which object class to use for the entry. 
dcObject seems like the natural choice since it contains the dc 
attribute, but that object class is an auxiliary class.  So what 
structural class would I use?

I took the above issue then as a warning that perhaps I wasn't 
partitioning things in the way intended by the software.  Should I 
instead be creating two partitions, one for each branch?  Or, asking it 
another way, does the software assume one partition == one branch?  That 
would remove the issue with context entry since I could use 
organizationalUnit as the object class.
