Re: Distinguished Name and Entry values

Hi, thanz a lot for those who have responded to my email.

I have juz one more question and that is it is neccessary 
to include
in the entry? Is it the normal standard. Have seen a few 
cases and discover it is done that way.

Can I juz say define a self defined objectclass (will be 
adding some new attributes) which will inherit from top and 
juz include the entry in the entry:
objectclass : mydefinedobject..

Thanz a lot

>ou: mycompany

>objectclass: top
>objectclass: organizationalunit
ou: sub_sub_group
