Many thanks for your answer.

hmmm, so my usage of @<objectClass name> sound correct to me. Please have a look into my original example: I wanted to restrict newly created entry to be of class "person" only. Thus I restricted the attrs using @person, in the hope that account-specific attributes (uid, serialNumber) are denied.

Nevertheless, the logs show that an account entry is created.

The sample acl statement works as intended in case of a modify-operation (ldapmodify'ing a single attribute of an existsing entry). During creation the attr=entry seems to overwrite the oc-specific restriction or slapd cannot differ between differen objectclasses and/or attributes during entry creation (ldapadd)?

If I'm wrong, could you please give me a short example acl set that denies the creation of account but grants creation of person entries?

Thanks again!
