(ITS#7409) ldapsearch issue using * in filters

Full_Name: Panagiotis Psarrakos
Version: 2.4.31
OS: CentOS release 5.5 (Final)
URL: ftp://ftp.openldap.org/incoming/
Submission from: (NULL) (

My environment consists of MySQL Cluster database with 2 Data nodes and 2 mysql
nodes. I have installed openLDAP at both mysql nodesusing back-ndb for
retrieving data from MySQL Cluster database.

The table OL_dn2id contains entries like the sample below

eid     |objectclass    | a0    | a1         | a2                 | a3
2790113	|entitlement@top| dc=ro | dc=cosmote | msisdn=40765494677 | bill=prepaid
993566	|usertable@top	| dc=ro	| dc=cosmote | msisdn=40765494677 | bill=postpaid

I need to perfrom search based on msisdn or based on attribute bill (bill can
have values prepaid/postpaid)

When i try to use the command
>ldapsearch -h localhost -LLL -x -s sub -d 32 -b

then i receive the error
Invalid DN syntax (34)
Additional information: invalid DN

As i understand i have to use both columns a3 and a2 in order to do searches
based on bill attribute but i need to have all msisdn based on the bill value

Is there a limitation in openLDAP implementation in using the character * for
wildcard LDAP searches?
