Re: rootdn and ACI

ACI (at least in OpenLDAP's slapd jargon) indicate a specific access
control means, based on data held insite the objects access is checked
for.  Usually access control in general is indicated as ACL.

Yes, if you bind as the rootdn of a database, and check access to objects
belonging to that database, access control is short-circuited, and the ACL
rules are not checked.

You didn't mention what version of the sofware you're using, but as far as
I can tell this has always been true.
