Yes. I have created a record for fred blogs.

And now, I have created a new record for michiko nagara.
cn=michiko nagara,dc=example,dc=com

I have changed my acl to the following.

access to *
       by group="cn=administrators,dc=example,dc=com" dnattr=member write  
       by * auth

I tried to modify dn "cn=fred blogs,dc=example,dc=com",
I got a error mesage:
ldap_modify: Insufficient access (50)

And I tried to modify dn "cn=michiko nagara,dc=example,dc=com",
I got the same error message.

I  have indexed objectclass in slapd.conf:

index  objectClass  pres,eq

and run slapindex.

Then, I tried to search filter "(objectclass=*)", but I got
no entries.

In my previous mail.

When I used OpenLDAP 2.1.3 with same acl as the above-mentioned, 
I could get all entries.
Also, I changed group.c v1.9.2.4 to v1.9.2.3 in OpenLDAP 2.1.4
and rebuilt, I could get all entries.

I have set acl as below:

access to *
       by group="cn=administrators,dc=example,dc=com"  write  
       by * auth

I could modify dn  "cn=fred blogs,dc=example,dc=com"
and dn "cn=michiko nagara,dc=example,dc=com", with OpenLDAP 2.1.3.
And I could get all entries with OpenLDAP 2.1.3.

However, I cannot get any entries with OpenLDAP 2.1.4.
