openldap 2.1 and alias/referral

Can anyone tell me what is going wrong? Are alias objects supported in
Maybe I am doing the wrong approach. I tried to use aliases, because I
want to be able to give different permissions to the same person, based

this branch for the people allowed to access that host (the host would
lookup users on its branch)
Is this the preferred way? or is there a better way of doing this?
