Re: PageControl mode should not be affected by sizelimit (ITS#3367)

First, I assume you are referring to the server-side administrative
size limit and not to the sizeLimit the client actually requested.

The behavior of the OpenLDAP server is as intended.

The purpose of the paged results control, as discussed in RFC 2696,
is to "allow the client to control the rate of which
the server returns results".  The purpose is not to enable
return of additional results.

The purpose of the OpenLDAP sizelimit administrative control, as
discussed in the OpenLDAP documentation, is to limit the size of the
result set, regardless of wether the client obtains the set all
at once, or in pages.  That is, the client is not allowed to page
around the administrative limit.

If the administrator wishes to allow clients to obtain larger
result sets, they should simply raise the limit.

This report will be closed.
