So, if someone has a uid of bsmith, and their dn is cn=Bill

Will openldap automatically use uid? If it does, I can use a million
OU's, if not, then if I use OU's won't the users have to use their
entire DN to login?

I assume they would have a UID attribute in their entry, and when they logged in, the system doing the lookup would look them up by UID, so they don't need to know their DN.
