Tokenizing the common parent DNs allows you to increase space usage efficiency when encoding entries for storage. The Directory Server automatically defines tokens for base DNs for the backend, such as dc=example,dc=com. You can also define additional common base DNs you want to tokenize.

  • Use the following configuration to tokenize two branches: ou=people,dc=example,dc=com and ou=customers,dc=example,dc=com.
    $ bin/dsconfig set-backend-prop --backend-name userRoot \ 
      --add "compact-common-parent-dn:ou=people,dc=example,dc=com" \ 
      --add "compact-common-parent-dn:ou=customers,dc=example,dc=com"
