searching on a DN

A general LDAP search question, if I can be so bold...

Is it possible to search the directory for an entry with a specific DN?  For
instance, the query:

./ldapsearch '(dn=cn=Intranet Users,ou=Groups,o=Harris/NSS)' cn

I've been trying this with different settings for -s and -b, but to no avail
(search returns empty).  This group object does exist, and

./ldapsearch -b 'cn=Intranet Users,ou=Groups,o=Harris/NSS' 'objectclass=*'

does return a value.

It may seem a stupid thing to do, but I've a reason... :-)  I needed to make
an OR filter with additional stuff to basically say, "return group objects
with one or these names and with a member attribute equal to blah."

Thanks for any advice.  Yell at me if I've not included enough details.
