The special abilities that root users have are granted through privileges. Privileges can be assigned to root users in two ways:
- By default, root users may be granted a specified set of privileges. Note that it is
possible to create root users which are not automatically granted these privileges by
ds-cfg-inherit-default-root-privilegesattribute with a value of FALSE in the entries for those root users.
- Individual root users can have additional privileges granted to them, and/or some automatically-granted privileges may be removed from that user.
The set of privileges that are automatically granted to root users is controlled by the

bypass-acl privilege or sufficient permission granted by the access control
configuration to make the change to the server's configuration.
