Overview #

SuperiorReferral points upward in the DIT toward the root.

The referral object acts as a delegation point, gluing two services together. This mechanism allows for hierarchical directory services to be constructed.

A referral object has a STRUCTURAL object class of Referral and has the same Distinguished Name as the delegated subtree.

Often the referral object may also provide the auxiliary object class extensibleObject which allows the entry to contain appropriate Relative Distinguished Name values.
