Re: More on dynamic group searches

This is my first post here, so if I'm going over old ground, please let
me know (I have searched).

I have looked through the archives and reached the conclusion that there
isn't a convenient means of searching for groups based on a dynamic
entry.  For example, if I have a dynlist entry containing

olcDlAttrSet: {0}groupOfURLs memberURL uniqueMember

uniqueMember is dynamically added to search results, but can't be part
of the search.

Is this conclusion correct?


I am migrating a client over from Sun's directory manager (which does
allow searching on dynamic attributes) to OpenLDAP, so I have to support
all the client applications that currently authenticate against and use
LDAP.  For example:


Don't use dynamic groups then. Use autogroups.
