Re: Question, what is the correct tree???

I would recommend using an attribute within the user's object to
distinguish, instead of creating more branches in the tree.  In my
higher-ed environment, I keep all users under ou=people, and then have
an "affiliation" attribute that designates whether they are faculty,
staff, student, etc, and they may even have multiple of these
affiliations.  This, for me, is easier to use than trying to parse the
DN of a user to determine the role.
