Afaik this is not possible with OpenLDAP. If it is, I would really like to
know how. My only bet is with dynamic groups/list, but I have no idea how.
It is possible, but it is stupid. An entry can only reside under a single
parent, but in most organizations a user can occupy multiple roles. The
approach you're pursuing is a dead end.

Not in nis.schema, but in rfc2307bis.schema, posixGroup is not structural.

It is possible in OpenLDAP too. Just now with nis.schema. Most LDAP clients
