for different reasons I want to create a additional Certificate
Authority. This CA should not dealing anything with Novell-Servers. It
should be only a CA to sign local certificates. It seems that eDir is
good place to to hold and manage the CA.

But the dokumentation says there can be only one CA per tree.
Is this a result of the fact that the CA infrastucture was used former
only for the novell internal things?

Is there no way to create and manage a second CA in eDir? This CA should
be for completly other services other as eDir and Novell-Services?
