Re: ldap_domain2hostlist is for "ldap" service only

Have there been any considerations in providing a similar API for a service name other than "ldap"? For example, what if I wanted to find global catalog servers?

If you want a more generic API for services outside the LDAP standards it's fairly easy to hack something yourself in your favourite programming language with the help of a decent DNS module.

Even though GCs are Active Directory specific, I don't see why OpenLDAP would not support that type of query. It seems like a new API where the service name can be passed in as a parameter (eg. "gc") would be useful.

It's very proprietary. I'm not even sure whether _gc._tcp was registered by IANA for that purpose.
