Re: New overlay, your opinion?

Thanks for you answer!

To set what attributes needs to be looked up by the overlay I simply use a symbol before them,
and I leave the possibility for the users to chose what symbol they want to use (default being "_" ).

For my tests I simply use the ldapsearch, no passing by a client program.
    ldapsearch -x -b "dc=test,dc=com" "(sn=*)" street
      -> this gives "street" in attName[iAtt].an_name.bv_val
    ldapsearch -x -b "dc=test,dc=com" "(sn=*)" _street
      -> this gives "1.1" in attName[iAtt].an_name.bv_val
In the 2.4.23 version of OpenLDAP this worked well. I found "_street" in the an_name.
I would then remove the _ before the attribute name so it would be send as a valid attribute to the server.
