Re: Multiple domains searchable

I'm using OpenLDAP 2.2.6 with back-bdb.

If I create the alias as:

dn: mail=joeuser@foo.com,ou=authdomain,dc=xyz,dc=com
objectClass: alias
objectClass: extensibleObject
mail: joeuser@foo.com
aliasedObjectName: mail=joeuser@foo.com,ou=members,dc=foo,dc=com

and then I do:

ldapsearch -a never -b ou=authdomain,dc=xyz,dc=com mail=joeuser@foo.com

I get back the expected result, the original (nondereferenced) alias.

However, if I do

ldapsearch -a always -b ou=authdomain,dc=xyz,dc=com mail=joeuser@foo.com

I get back no results.  I would expect to get back the information from
the dereferenced alias.
