This is as far as I can get:

access to dn.regex="^(.+,)?ou=[^,]+,(dc=[^,]+(,dc=[^,]+)*)$"

it requires at least one "dc=value" and allows for more, and stores in
"$2" the whole "domain" part of the DN, for subsequent replacement.


1) ou=People,dc=ldap,dc=example,dc=com
2) cn=ando,ou=People,dc=ldap,dc=example,dc=com
3) cn=ando,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
4) cn=ando,ou=People,dc=com

as inputs, which should entail all the interesting cases

access to dn.regex="^(.+,)?ou=[^,]+,(dc=[^,]+,?)+$"

matches in all cases, but submatch "$1" is always "cn=ando," except for
input 1), while submatch "$2" is always "dc=com" which is not what you
meant, I think.  With

access to dn.regex="^(.+,)?ou=[^,]+,(dc=[^,]+(,dc=[^,]+)*)$"

all cases match, and the submatches are:

"$1" always "cn=ando," except, of course, 1);
"$2" is "dc=ldap,dc=example,dc=com" in cases 1) and 2), while "$2" is
"dc=example,dc=com" in case 3) and "dc=com" in case 4), which is what we
expected, as I assume, i.e. having a domain-style naming context entirely

You may use http://www.sys-net.it/~ando/Download/regex.c to test it.
