alias dereferencing versus referrals
Imagine the following DIT :
dn: ou=orgA, c=pt (objectClass referral, extensibleObject/ ref =
dn: ou=orgA, c=pt(objectClass:organizationalUnit)
dn: ou=orgAUnit, ou=orgA, c=pt(objectClass:organizationalUnit)
Imagine further that we're connected to DSA_1, and that we're not following
or handling referrals or continuation references.
The problem is that whenever I set alias dereferencing to FINDING, a search
with base ou=orgAUnit, ou=orgA, c=pt returns NoSuchObject. However, by
setting it to SEARCHING I get a ReferralError, which was my expected result.
The fact that alias dereferencing settings affect the search result WHEN NO
ALIASES ARE INVOLVED seems strange to me.
This must be a problem with the server rigth?
If so, is this behaviour according to any standard? More important, IS THIS
Please, I really need help on this.
