The following figure illustrates how DN renaming is performed by Directory Proxy Server.
In Figure 17–2, the client contains the dc=example, dc=com database. The LDAP server contains the dc=example, dc=org database. The Directory Proxy Server renames the DNs.
Attributes that contain DNs must also be renamed if those DNs are in the portion of the DIT that is affected by the original DN renaming. In Figure 17–2, the group attribute contains a list of the DNs of group members. When dc=example, dc=com is renamed to dc=example, dc=org, the DNs in the group attribute must also be renamed.
For information about how to configure DN renaming, see To Configure DN Renaming in Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.1 Administration Guide.
