Re: Creating empty groupOfUniqueNames..
I want to create a set of groups that will be used for authorization
purposes. To me, it seems that a groupOfNames or groupOfUniqueNames
will best serve this purpose. (Better suggestions?) However, both
object classes require at least one member attribute. There will be
times though when a member is not known. How do you handle this?
Right now I create all groups with an invalid member attribute:
Does this break any convention? Is there a better way to handle this?
There's nothing wrong with what you suggest. I would ignore
groupOfUniqueNames, it's rather useless in the LDAP context. Note that
it is legal for distinguishedName syntax to have a zero-length value. I
would just use groupOfNames with a zero-length member, which is
fundamentally the same idea as your using an invalid DN.
