access to dn.subtree=”ou=stc,ou=bl-uits,ou=bl,dc=ods,dc=iu,dc=edu”

You can use Workgroup Manager, ldapmodify, or phpLDAPadmin to add directives. The
following is the file (acl.ldif) for the ldapmodify method:
dn: cn=default,cn=accesscontrols,dc=ods,dc=iu,dc=edu
changetype: modify
add: apple-acl-entry
apple-acl-entry: 1500:access to dn.subtree="ou=stc,ou=bl-uits,ou=bl,dc=ods,dc=iu,dc=edu"
by group/posixGroup/memberUid="cn=admin,cn=groups,ou=stc,ou=bl-
uits,ou=bl,dc=ods,dc=iu,dc=edu" write
by group/posixGroup/memberUid="cn=admin,cn=groups,dc=ods,dc=iu,dc=edu" write
by * read
Note that the apple-acl-entry should be on a single line (no returns). Here is the corre-
sponding command:
$ ldapmodify -x -D "uid=diradmin,cn=users,dc=ods,dc=iu,dc=edu" -W -f acl.ldif
For more information on OpenLDAP’s access controls, see `man slapd.access` and

OU Administration
Workgroup Manager
Now that everything is set up, how can local administrators use Workgroup Manager to
create groups, computer lists, and managed preferences in their own OUs?
Normally, one would connect directly to the Open Directory server to manage the users,
groups, computers, etc. (Figure 12).

This can still be done by the directory administrator (diradmin), but it will only modify the
containers at the root level of the tree (the default configuration). There is no facility
within Workgroup Manager to transverse the directory tree, but we can use a certain
feature to get around this limitation.
