At the moment i try to understand the basic concepts of LDAP, so i have a probably stupid question. An LDAP entry can, according to specification, have exactly one objectclass. So what happens when different applications need different objectclasses? For example i have entries with the objectclass "inetOrgPerson", now another application needs another schema "aVerySpecialPerson" which inherit from person. Do i have to replicate the whole tree now?
Thanx in advance...

An LDAP entry can have more than one objectclass ! So say iNetOrgPerson have 5 attributes and Internal (another object class) has 3 attributes
a person for e.g. James belonging to iNetorgPerson and Internal will have 8 attributes available.
not sure from where you read that an entry should have just 1 object class. Thats not true.
