Re: rootdn in database

In OpenLDAP 2.* , you needn't add the rootDN in the DIT at all, indeed , we can add a Manager Dn to describe some info of the root Manager, but this is not must do that .

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.

Hello All,

Here's an easy one for you.

Does the rootdn have to be added to the database to be usable? If so
what's objectclass should it use?
