Re: Please tell me I have something configured wrong...
I guess this shouldn't surprise me too much but, I did some additional testing with this DN thing. I added a valid inetOrgPerson as a "member" of my group and I deleted the inetOrgPerson. OpenLDAP did not clean the now invalid DN from the "member" attribute of my group. Am I missing something here?
The LDAP directories that I have been using are Novell's and Micro$oft's. I know these are not 100% pure LDAP directories but, they are much more functional in this regard. Are there any plans to fix this in OpenLDAP? Does anyone consider this a bug other than me?
BTW, Ingo, the tool I have been using to modify/add entires is ldapmodify/ldapadd and it does nothing to ensure consistency. If the tool (instead of the directory) is supposed to do the job, shouldn't ldapadd/ldapmodify enforce this?
Still searching for answers...

If it would do so, it will be a RDBMS.
the App, which is used for manipulating LDAP-Entries, should ensure
Just my opinion, unverified.
