8.1 The Directory Namespace
Although we will eventually need to modify it, we will start by using
the namespace developed in Chapter 6 and Chapter 7. Our directory root is
dc=plainjoe,dc=org, and user-related information
is stored beneath the people organizational unit
directly below the root, as shown in Figure 8-1.
The group organizational unit contains any
posixGroup entries as well as any administrative
group (groupOfNames) objects used in access
control rules for the directory. We will need to add additional organizational units,
which we will do later in this chapter.
