what does "chain" mean in this case? chaining usually means that one
the DSAs contain a portion of the information, the other contains
portion, and you want that one of the DSA be able to propagate an
operation on data contained in the other on behalf of the client,
than returning a referral. However, since the two naming contexts
share anything, I don't se how the two DSAs could be related.

Does this mean the two DSAs contain the same data? In this case
no need to chain anything; actually, I would expect one is replica of

Unless you clarify what you intend to do, the answer o this is

The short answer is: NO.
