Hi Kevin,

I'm moving this topic to the users list...

There's a chapter about this topic in the doco. Please see the User Guides  
on the topic "authorization".

Depending on what you intend to allow/disallow your users to see in your  
directory, you might also need to write some ACIs. If you want, I can  
assist you setting this up.

Please note that ehe documentation still mentions the server.xml file.  
This file is however obsolete in version 2.0. Instead, config is done  
directly in the server. You can alter the configuration using ehe  
Directory Studio. Just look under the ou=config node.

Kind regards
