They probably built their ldapsearch with a different
base DN; the base DN is compiled into the binary.  This
should really go away, and the binary should determine
the base DN programatically by querying the directory,
since this is easy to do for both LDAPv2 and LDAPv3

Have them specify the base DN on the command line using
the ``-b "ou=engineering,dc=nitrosocftlinux,dc=com"'' (or
whatever your base DN really is).
