That's a warning to be careful if you run the unit-test suite. Generally you won't be doing that so there is no need to panic.

As a newbie, I have been experimenting with grouper and now want to
try using the PSP to demonstrate management of a group in a test AD.
Having watched the training videos I am configuring ldap.properties,
in which I see the following...
# The default base DN for searches.
# All subordinate objects will be deleted during tests !
# The base DN for groups.
# The base DN for people.
That warning sounds a bit scary! What does it really mean?
And what is the default base DN used for? The configuration defines a
base for group searches and a base for people searches. The AD I am
working with was configured (not by me) with ou=Staff and ou=Students
configured directly below the root of the tree. To search for both
types of user in a single source therefore required me to give the
root as the search base. This caused trouble: Grouper didn't like the
references which AD returns...
Subject API error: error with subject source id: qad, name: QA AD,
problem with getSubject by id, in sources.xml: search searchSubject: ,
NamingException: Unprocessed Continuation Reference(s)
I found the explanation for this here:
I got round it by restricting my source to staff only and so was able
to specify a search base below the root. I am wondering whether I am
going to come up against the same problem when I specify the root of
the tree for edu.vt.middleware.ldap.baseDn in ldap.properties.
