In relation to this, I'm curious about ou/o vs. dc. We use uid=x, cn=accounts,dc=stanford,dc=edu for example, rather than uid=x, ??=accounts,ou=stanford,o=edu. What are the pros/cons? Is there a particular reason to use one syntax over the other?

If you use dc based naming then you can determine the location of referral servers through SRV records in the DNS.


And some LDAP clients even support it. ;-)
