Re: entryUUID in DN

entryUUID is an operational attribute and hence cannot be
used in naming.  Instead, just stuff a UUID (or other
appropriately unique value) you generate into an appropriate
naming attribute.

This, however, is a bit of a hassle - and entries are already augmented with "entryUUIDs", "entryCSNs", and "createTimestamps". But I don't know how including - for instance - "entryUUID" in an entry's DN would work - the entry can't be created without a DN, and the "entryUUID" isn't available till the entry's created. I don't suppose there's a syntax:
