For as far as I know, it depends on the server:

when you look at your schemas, you'll find the maximum lenght of the 


in core.schema.default

attributetype ( NAME 'name'
        EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
        SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch

as you can see, there is {32768} at the end of the syntax line.  This 
number is the maximum lenght of that attribute (name in this case).

When no lenght has been specified, I suppose there is no maximum lenght, 
but I'm not sure...

hope this helps,
