Re: Searches failing weird

Hi Chris,

I have been having a heck of a time getting simple searches to work.  For a
while the only search I seemed to be able to do is just a unfiltered search
that brings back the whole tree.

However, I have since found a search I can do:
ldapsearch -b o=top -h localhost "(cn=*ris*)" mail

Please show us the hole entry (ldapsearch without the mail attribute)

>ldapsearch -b o=top -h localhost "(cn=*ris*)"

Are you shure that cn attribute is set to "chris@ambigc.com"?
Probably your index is corrupt ..

Results in:
# chris@ambigc.com, People, Ambiguous Computer Company Ltd, top
dn: cn=chris@ambigc.com,ou=People,o=Ambiguous Computer Company Ltd,o=top
mail: chris@ambigc.com
(cn=c*) works
(cn=*chr*) works

However, searches for (cn=ch), (cn=chris*), (cn=chr*), and (cn=chris@ambigc.com)
fail to bring back results. So it appears to only be able to search for 3
characters and only between * and * and the first letter plus *.

I assume I am doing something really wrong.  Can someone help me please?
