RE: One directory server, multiple roots

The first entry below root in your config is dc=com. What follows are unique
DNs therefore this implies you can have a single DSA that has configuration
relating to you company. Be careful, if you are going to push this data out
to the Public internet, which is likely to cause a clash if you have not
checked uniqueness.

dc=company a, dc=com
dc=company a, dc=com
dc=company a, dc=com

Subject: One directory server, multiple roots

Our company may need to maintain LDAP directories for
multiple companies.  Each one is really its own root.
Eventually, the directories may relocate to their respective
companies, but before that happens I'm wondering if
LDAP servers can be configured to support multiple roots.

For instance, querying our companies ldap server, the search
base is dc=efinnet,dc=com.  Searching another company's
directory would use the base of dc=acme,dc=com.

Can both be implemented on the same server at port 389?
