The root DSE object may contain a number of different attributes as described in RFC 2251 section 3.4:
* namingContexts: naming contexts held in the server
* subschemaSubentry: subschema entries (or subentries) known by this server
* altServer: alternative servers in case this one is later unavailable.
* supportedExtension: list of supported extended operations.
* supportedControl: list of supported controls.
* supportedSASLMechanisms: list of supported SASL security features.
* supportedLDAPVersion: LDAP versions implemented by the server.

The above example, which contains a lot more information is from Windows 2003 accessible without authentication.
The same request against OpenLDAP will result in significantly less information.

The ldap-search script queries the root DSE for the namingContexts and/or defaultNamingContexts, which it sets as base
if no base object was specified

Credit goes out to Martin Swende who provided me with the initial code that got me started writing this.
