I'm presently thinking it better to lower the effective limit

request as an (adminLimitExceeded or like) error.

Doesn't that sort of negate the purpose of the AdminLimitExceeded error code then?

In slapd(8), if the user requests sizeLimit=0, they get the

s/otherwise an error occurs/otherwise the hard limit is used/

(which is what I think the current slapd(8) behavior is)

I confirm, the current behavior is that an error occurs if a limit greater than hard is explicitly requested by the client. I've found the message thread where the limits behavior was designed. Unless amended in later messages (I didn't follow the whole thread), this is what we agreed at the time.


Of course, we can amend it now; however, now the "max"
mechanism allows to directly hit the hard limit, if any.
