I have an issue that just started a few days ago where when I search our LDAP for the field employeeNumber a number of my accounts will come back as not found even though they are in there, I can search by the uid and find the person and looking at the record the employeeNumber is exactly what I was searching for.
I can however do a search for (employeeNumber=*000111222) and find the employee where a search for (employeeNumber=000111222) will not find anything. On other accounts the search returns the expected result.
Comparing 2 accounts, one that works as expected and one that doesn't both and an employeeNumber field and both are set to a text value of 9 characters.
