RE: setting up LDAP question

One thing you'll have to deal with if you ever plan to upgrade to 2.1.x
or (I assume) beyond is a strict enforcement of the single structural
objectclass entry rule.  In 2.1.x you must have one and ONLY one
structural object class represented in each entry.  So your entries in
cn=unixgroup,ou=users, for example, would not be permitted because both
the posixGroup and the groupOfUniqueNames are structural objectclasses.
But in uid=userx,ou=users, you have no structural objectclasses.  So
this class of entry would also be rejected.

Subject: setting up LDAP question

I want to:

- use LDAP for internal use
- use LDAP for an addressbook
- use LDAP for user auth
- use LDAP for different other future databases
- use my own objectclasses. I have an IANA number (

It works, but I'd like to know if I'm on the right way when I organize 
things like this:

|   |\__cn=unixgroup (top,posixGroup,groupOfUniqueNames)
|   |\__uid=user1 (top,posixAccount,shadowAccount)
|   |\__uid=user2
|    \__uid=user3
|   |\__cn=address1 (naw [local.schema])
|   |\__cn=address2
|   |\__cn=address3
|    \__cn=address4
|   |\__cn=entry1 (another-objectclass [local.schema])

I have a local.schema, a slapd.conf (a RedHat version) and an ldif dump:


It is an rpm install of openldap-2.0.23-4 on RedHat-7.3.

Comments are really appreciated. I'm an LDAP newbie. Please do not talk 
5-year-LDAP-experience-language to me ;-) I just want to set up an LDAP 
server that is properly configured.
