This gives 'uid=userx,...' access to 'ou=system,...' _and everything
below it_.

access to dn.exact="ou=system,dc=example,dc=com"
ÂÂ by dn.base="uid=userx,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com" write

While this is the opposite - it gives 'uid=userx,...' and any objects below
this (not much point in this exact example :) to ONLY the base object
Your'e thinking of dn.subtree. dn.base only applies to the specific entry.
