Another way could be to create 'groups' and make everyone members of
Not that you have the choice or ability to change your LDAP
hierarchy, but I prefer to not group people by organization, since
they can move, or as you've discovered, be located in multiple orgs.
I'm setting my hierarchy up such that 'people' end up under a
'people' objectClass, then I have 'groups' for things like QA,
Development, Management, etc. This way, if one person moves from
group to group, I need to just change their group designator, but if
they are in multiple groups simultaneously, it's easy to list them
that way too.
Just some thoughts I've had that might be useful to you or others on
this list facing similar dilemmas.
