Re: Operational attributes in ldapsearch vs. in slapcat
How come the list of operational attributes from slapcat does not
include the three operational attributes (entryDN, subschemaSubentry,
and hasSubordinates) that are returned with ldapsearch when the + attr
list is specified? Is this a bug or by design?
Those attributes are generated on the fly, not stored in the database.
slapcat just displays what is stored in the database.
Both entryDN and hasSubordinates are totally redundant, their only
purpose is to be targets of ldapsearch filters. One could make an
argument that subschemaSubentry ought to be preserved, but at present we
don't allow different schema over different subtrees so it's redundant too.
