OpenDS Tips: Multiple suffixes with OpenDS

When installing OpenDS, you're asked to define a Base DN (aka Suffix, aka Naming Context) for your directory instance. A default is proposed : dc=example,dc=com.

OpenDS supports multiple suffixes per backend and multiple backends.

The Control Panel allows you to easily add suffixes to the current backend or to a new backend.

You can also do it through the dsconfig command line tool.

$ dsconfig set-backend-prop --backend-name userRoot --add base-dn:dc=MyCompany,dc=com
--hostname localhost --port 4444 --bindDN cn=Directory\\ Manager --bindPassword \*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*
--trustAll --noPropertiesFile --no-prompt
