Re: rootdn in database


In OpenLDAP 1.2* you definitely need the root dn object in the database.

The objectclass is whatever your root DN indicates. For example:

If your root DN is

  ou=People, o=My Company, c=US

then your root object has to have the objectclass

  objectclass: organizationalUnit


  ou: People

because this is what "ou" comes from.

I don't know how how OpenLDAP 2.* behaves regarding this, but I guess it
hasn't changed.
