OID value:

OID description:
The values of this attribute correspond to naming contexts which this server masters or shadows. If the server does not master any information (e.g. it is an LDAP gateway to a public X.500 directory) this attribute will be absent. If the server believes it contains the entire directory, the attribute will have a single value, and that value will be the empty string (indicating the null DN of the root). This attribute will allow a client to choose suitable base objects for searching when it has contacted a server.
