Subject RE: What are the guidelines for partitions based on domain names that have three or more components?
Date Thu, 23 Feb 2012 13:23:14 GMT
A correction to the DN associated with domain.org.  It should be,
obviously, dc=domain,dc=org:

DN: dc=my,dc=domain,dc=org <-- SHOULD BE 
                               dc=domain,dc=org

objectclass 	- extensibleObject (auxiliary)
objectclass 	- organizationalUnit (structural)
objectclass		- top (abstract)
ou			- domain <-- this can be whatever
dc			- domain <-- LDAP Browser will show 
                               dc=domain,dc=org

Subject: What are the guidelines for partitions based on domain names
that have three or more components?

I need to create partitions that have three or more components (e.g.,
my.domain.org, or my.domain.org.mx).  Creating the partition is not a
problem, but when I create the corresponding context entry, although the
DN becomes:

DN: dc=my,dc=domain,dc=org

The dc attribute for the context entry picks up only the first part:
"my":

DN: dc=my,dc=domain,dc=org

objectclass 	- extensibleObject (auxiliary)
objectclass 	- organizationalUnit (structural)
objectclass		- top (abstract)
ou			- my.domain <--this can be whatever
dc			- my <-- this is what is displayed in the LDAP
Browser


I can set the attribute to whatever I want, BUT my question is if this
is right (or should it be set to "my.domain"). 

WHEN one looks at the context entry in the LDAP Browser in Eclipse, the
DN is right, but the entry shows "dc=my" in the browser tree.

HOWEVER, if I create a partition and a corresponding context entry using
domain.org, the LDAP Browser shows dc=domain,dc=org, even though the dc
attribute is "domain":

DN: dc=my,dc=domain,dc=org

objectclass 	- extensibleObject (auxiliary)
objectclass 	- organizationalUnit (structural)
objectclass		- top (abstract)
ou			- domain <-- this can be whatever
dc			- domain <-- LDAP Browser will show
dc=domain,dc=org
