Well Hallvard,

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).
