Logging in without full DN

Hi everyone,

We're chugging along, unifying our databases and old LDAP installation
with our new Unified LDAP solution.  Everything's going great.

"seanhussey" would alias to

Was I dreaming, or is this possible?

We're on 2.2.28 right now, but I'm in the middle of upgrading to 2.2.29.
