44 uid=bluethundr,ou=summitnjops,ou=staff,dc=summitnjhome,dc=com
uid: bluethundr
cn: Timothy P. ThatGuy
givenName: Timothy P.

mailRoutingAddress: bluethundr@mail.example.com
mailHost: mail.summitnjhome.com
objectClass: inetLocalMailRecipient
objectClass: person
objectClass: organizationalPerson
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
objectClass: posixAccount
objectClass: top
userPassword: {CRYPT}secret
uidNumber: 1001
gidNumber: 1002
homeDirectory: /home/bluethundr
gecos: Timothy P. ThatGuy
loginShell: /usr/local/bin/bash

The LDAP server is FreeBSD but the clients are CentOS.

attribute with a BSD path to bash (i.e. /usr/local/bin/bash), when the
clients which are all CentOS needed the red hat path to bash (i.e.

 I have also added an index for uid to by slap.conf as per your suggestion.

Best regards and thank you again for your assistance!
