RE: memberOf attribute: part of LDAP v3 standard ?


1) memberOf attribute is not part of the basic LDAP v3 schema,
2) but if memberOf attribute is in a LDAP server schema, then
   ldapsearching that server for entities with attribute list including
memberOf is correct
   and should return associated value(s).

Right ?

Well sort of,  if the attribute is defined in someones schema with a
valid OID.  But the behavior you describe I'm pretty certain isn't.
