Maybe I don't understand but,  I'm looking at § in this
document : http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin22/schema.html

The goal is to create an attributetype called "myUniqueName" which is
unique. With the last definition of this attributetype :

 attributetype ( NAME 'myUniqueName'
               DESC 'unique name with my organization'
               SUP name )

How can openldap guess that we cant a unique attributetype ?
I don't see anything in the document you refer to that implies that slapd will
enforce uniqueness on the attribute. It only states that organisations may
maintain a unique ID (but does not state how).

Isn't there a SINGLE-VALUE missing at the end of the description ?
Uniqueness is orthogonal to being multi-valued.

Ok, I didn't quite understand the meaning of SINGLE-VALUE, I see now.

But look at § : in the first example, SINGLE-VALUE is
specified and not in the second example. Is this because "name" is
already single-valued ?

name is defined as a multiple-valued attribute in standard-track specifications.
