Hello all,

I saw on a book

what book?

that OpenLDAP locks parent entries when an entry is
updating... It's true ?
Example :

If I'm updating "uid=username,ou=Users,dc=mydomain",
"ou=Users,dc=mydomain" and all children will be locked (write lock?)
while the update is performing ??

Are you kidding? Who can write that type of crap? There used to be a giant write lock in back-ldbm ages ago, which locked up the whole database, not just descendants, while writing. Nothing like that occurs since back-bdb (and back-hdb), which means since OpenLDAP 2.0 (back to 2000).
