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.
