Your graphics are fine :-)

I've been doing exactly this in our ldap server for about 6 months and it
seems to work well. We have an external "ldap manager" application which
nightly follows the division reference on every employee and updates some of
their other attributes based on their division's attributes (eg fax number,
physical location, postal address). This is a great labour saver when either
a person moves divisions, or a division moves to a new part of town....

You definitely DONT want to have people under their divisions in your ldap

Good luck
