Hi, I'm trying to add a node in LDAP. That node contains two object classes.
There are some MUST and some MAY attributes are in each objectclass. In my
if I'm not wrong ( if worng plz make me correct )what I understand by the
of MAY and MUST is as follows:

MAY - Attributes of this category may or may not be present in objectclass 
     and value may or may not be empty.
MUST - Attributes of this category must have to present in objectclass
      and value canot be empty. otherwise it will throw objectclass violation
      or some other related error.

But now in Open LDAP 2.0.1 I'm trying to add the node having a "may" attribute
empty value
 and it is throwing a naming exception.

How to solve this? Do I have to do some work in schema......??
Am I wrong ....?? I will apppreciate if u will make me right.
