Chapter 9. Entry object class reference

This reference is an alphabetical list of the object classes accepted by the default schema. It gives a definition of each object class and lists its required and allowed attributes. The object classes listed are available to support entry information.

The required attributes listed for an object class must be present in the entry when that object class is added to the directory’s ldif file. If an object class has a superior object class, both of these object classes with all required attributes must be present in the entry. If required attributes are not listed in the ldif file, than the server will not restart.

Note

The LDAP RFCs and X.500 standards allow for an object class to have more than one superior object class. This behavior is not currently supported by Directory Server.
