RE: :LDAP moddn problems

You didn't mention which version of the LDAP server you're running.
This is a known limitation in OpenLDAP's ldbm database, it can only
rename leaf nodes.

Subject: NET::LDAP moddn problems

I am developing a perl cgi application using the Net::LDAP modules.

I can use the moddn function to change the dn of a leaf entry in the
directory.  If I try to change the dn of an entry somewhere in the middle of
the directory structure (one which has sub-entries) the operation fails.
I've experimented with moddn until blue in the face.

Does anyone know of a workaround for this?

Thanks in advance
