if he doesn't get anything while not asking for all operational
attributes, it's likely an OpenLDAP server...
can you please search the rootDSE for all operational attributes (i.e.
requesting '*' '+')?
With respect to your other question, I note that the non-working filter is
broken (there should be an opening bracket after '&'), unless the typo
occurred when cut'n'pasting into the email. However, this type of error
should show up directly at the client's side, because that string canot be
parsed into a valid filter. Otherwise, reversing the order of the terms
in an AND cannot change the result (despite claims from some vendor which
I heard long time ago).
