RE: Storing references...
Ya, groupOfUniqueNames should solve this issue. But my original problem was
different. Having an attribute to store the reference. Actually I've an
entry which has attribute "cn" which store lot of values as shown below :
cn: HERE I WANT TO STORE THE REFERENCE...... LIKE
Now as I have multiple values for attrubute 'cn' diffucult to get actual
reference to the object which I've shown as
Is there any other attribute which I can use instead of cn for
storing this reference ?????

Ok, I understand better now. Why not use a groupOfUniqueNames object
for each module? This is pretty much exactly what they are for, or do
you need to store additional information per user for each module they
have access to?
I don't know if the alias manages auto-deletion of the referred object,
I'd be rather surprised if it does. Anyone?
