Re: creating links

Quoting Lukas Meyer <lukas@msys.ch>:

Let us assume I created two knots in an ldap tree. First is
ou=people,o=example and second ou=others,o=example. Now I create the
object cn=John Doe,ou=people,o=example. Now I want to create like a
link in ou=other,o=example that points  to the person cn=John
Doe,ou=people,o=example. Is this possible? And if so, how? Because I
need to put the same person under different objects and they should
all point to the same person in case someone is going to change an
attribute of this person, the attributes of all "links" have to change.

Does anyone knows how I can do that?

This is called 'referals'. I'm note sure how to do them with out looking
in the manual, but it's quite simple if I remember correctly (never done
them myself)...

Thanks to all for answering. I found now some more information and I think I don't need the referrals because theres an other object named alias. I'm trying to use this but the server won't accept my ldif file.

Does anyone has any example ldifs in which he/she is using aliases?
