Hi Quanah, thank you too for your reply! 

Could you elaborate on using an empty base/suffix? The concept seems 
strange to me and I don't really understand the implications (but I have 
very little experience with LDAP as of yet). However, googling around 
most posts seem to describe only problems with empty suffixes. Do you 
know of any examples or documentation that describe this approach more
