Technical Summary

   Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) update operations, such
   as Add, Delete, and Modify operations, have atomic, consistency,
   isolation, durability (ACID) properties.  Each of these update
   operations act upon an entry.  It is often desirable to update two or
   more entries in a single unit of interaction, a transaction.
   Transactions are necessary to support a number of applications
   including resource provisioning.  This document extends LDAP to
   support transactions.

Working Group Summary

   This document is not the result of any IETF Working Group,
   it is an independent submission to the RFC Editor.

Document Quality

   Alexey Melnikov has reviewed this specification for conformance
   with the RFC 4520 requirements for allocation of new LDAP protocol
   mechanisms (FCFS policy), and for RFC 3932 requirements for conflict
   with IETF work or processes.


   Alexey Melnikov is the Responsible Area Director.

RFC Editor Note

  done in IETF, so it has no note to insert into this document,
