Subject RE: [ApacheDS] Unable to create a partition with DS 2.0.0 M5 and Studio 2.0.0 v2
Date Thu, 23 Feb 2012 12:24:05 GMT

I went through this exercise yesterday.  I'll summarize what I did.

1. In Apache Directory Studio create a server and run it.
2. Right-click on the server and select Open Configuration.
3. Select Partitions on the bottom tab, then click on the Add button.
4. Rename the partition on the right-hand side.  (e.g., ID: myPartition, Suffix: dc=mypartition,dc=com)
5. Save the config.ldif file.
5. Restart the server.  This will reload the config.ldif for the server and create the partition.
6. On the LDAP Browser, select the Root DSE node.
7. Right-click on the Root DSE node and select New, then New Context Entry.
8. On the dialog box, select the [Use existing entry as template] option and then click on
the [Browse...] button
9. On the Select DN dialog box that appears, select the ou=system and then click OK.
10. Now back on the New Context Entry dialog, select the [Next] button.
11. On the next dialog that offers you Object Classes, just click [Next] again.

12. Enter the DN that corresponds to your partition (dc=mypartition,dc=com), then click [Next]
13. Fill the ou attribute (e.g., "mypartition") that appears in the next dialog and then click

I have tried manually creating the partition and am not totally sure how to 
use Studio to make a partition as I have found no docs for v2 or anything 
that tells you how to make a partition using Studio.

In the end it keeps giving me a protocol error. A bonus would be to find out 
exactly how to create a partition in Studio with the wizard. I know how to 
run the wizard, I am not sure what choices to use.
