Thanks Howard! I'm going with 2 because re-writing the custom software
I have just isn't an option.

When I set up the ldap server with a virtual view via slapd-relay and
slapo-rwm and run a query against it, I get back no data! Do you know

Here's my slapd.conf config for the virtual view:
database relay
suffix "dc=virtual"
relay "ou=Users,dc=example,dc=com"
overlay rwm
rwm-suffixmassage "ou=Users,dc=example,dc=com"

When I run a query against it however, it succeeds but returns no data!

Here's some relevant logs:
SRCH "dc=virtual" 1 0
    0 0 0
    filter: (uid=username)

conn=1011 op=4 SRCH base="dc=virtual" scope=1 deref=0 filter="(uid=username)"
