Re: groupOfURLs objectClass

Does anyone know whether getting groupOfURLs to work with OpenLDAP 2.0.x
require more than schema specifications e.g. modification of the server core.
I'm not really into C-programming myself but really want to leverage the power
of OpenLDAP instead of moving to a comercial product.

I have located the schema specifications at iPlanet/Netscape but the groups
fail to expand. The schema and attribute definitions are available upon

Comments to the fact the groupOfURLs doesn't work with OpenLDAP is very welcome
as well.
