Re: simple bind with non-dn

In Domino you can do a simple bind with a non-dn like
# ldapsearch -x -d "notes admin" -W -h dominoserver cn="hans*"
Where the username is in e.g. the CN attribute.

Is there a way to achieve this behavior with OpenLDAP 2.3.x somehow?

No. And there is no simple workaround, since compliance with DN syntax is performed well before any chance to muck with the supplied value. Sounds like the right time to fix a broken application relying on a broken, non-standard behavior?
