RE: OpenLDAP 2.1 DN question

Hi Pierangelo,
	Thank you very much for the answer, but do you know where this requirement comes from? I could not find it in the LDAP RFCs.

The requirement is a bit different: the attribute types,
and the respective values, that are used in an'antry's
RDN must be present in the entry as well. As a


needs a

D: 3

attribute; note that

D: 4 would be erroneous as well, because "D"
would present, but its value would not match
that in the RDN.
