FYI, we (Novell) are currently working on releasing an update to fix this 
problem. I can't tell you when it will get released, yet. But it will for 
sure be before SLES11 SP2.

Until then a possible workaround could be to use some clever ACL to 
filter the OIDs of VLV and Server Side Sort from the supportedControl 
Attribute of the rootDSE.
