Did you read back-meta's man page (slapd-meta(5)) with respect to DN
rewriting?  Rewrite rules are target-specific, while you appear to put all
of them before any target specification; moreover, in the above rule,
you're mapping everything from "dc=.*,ou=A" to "ou=A,dc=.*", which is fine
for ther search base; but then you'll need to rewrite "ou=A,dc=.*" back to
"dc=.*,ou=A", which you're not doing right now.  Your problem is so
trivial that you could obtain the desired result by simply using the
"suffixmassage" directive inside each target specification, instead of
explicitly writing the rules.
