Object Classes

As defined in RFC 2252, an object class may be abstract, structural, or auxiliary. An abstract object class may not be used by itself in an entry; a derived structural class is required. Each directory entry must include one structural object class. An entry may also include zero or more auxiliary (mix-in) classes.
