I would like to know what is the display order of one multivalue attribute ?
For example, the telephoneNumber attribute has 3 values, how they will be displayed in the ldapsearch command ? The oldest is the first ?
You cannot rely on the order.
I know I saw this in books and/or RFCs, but I have yet to see a
multivalue attribute returned from any LDAP implementation with values
not consistently in the order they are defined. I don't doubt the
standard, but I have to ask: under what circumstances will OpenLDAP
return values in an arbitrary order?
