im trying to get an openldap server (2.3.) running with acl restricting access to special attributes

tb_READ should be allowed to search in the ou people but must not read any attributes then telephoneNumber, cn, sn, uid...

so i added this access rule to my slapd.conf :

access to dn.subtree="ou=people,dc=example,dc=com" attrs=telephoneNumber,cn,sn,mail,roomNumber,uid,givenName
	by dn="cn=tb_READ,ou=functional,dc=example,dc=com" read

If you don't allow access to the "entry" attribute somewhere else, that's why it doesn't work:

(Quoting Adminguide23, 6.3.1)
"To read (and hence return) a target entry, the subject must have read access to the target's entry attribute."
