Before we move on its worth taking a few minutes to figure out what we are trying to do when we access the DIT and what the term unique may mean.

If it is not unique then it is still OK for searching reading but useless for writing - in which case some other attribute or combination of attributes must be used. When an entry is added or created it is always assigned a DN and, in general, this DN is usually that which is most frequently used to access the entry.
However, if this entry will be used for authentication purposes then special considerations apply.
Finally, it is possible to combine two or more attributes to form a multi-valued RDN which is then used in the DN. Typically if you search on an attribute frequently it should be indexed.
