Are you issuing a a modrdn call? This means modify RDN.

You are not allowed to call modrdn for different branches of the
LDAP tree. Different branches could be located on different LDAP
servers (or DSAs).

You can only do a modrdn for e.g. uid=grunwalm,ou=win,ou=wag,dc=test
-> uid=grunwalm2,ou=win,ou=wag,dc=test.

When moving data from one branch to another you have to 1. copy all
the data and 2. delete the old entries.

Don't know about JNDI though.
