Re: slapd-meta and paged results control

Sadly, that was my opinion too. But there are some applications without any way to finetune ldap client parameters, so I asked if there is a secret option... :)

Thanks for your help,

I'm trying to set up an openldap proxy server using slapd-meta. Everything
worked so far, but after the backend database grew bigger and bigger,
searches with a fixed page size started to give strange results.

Tracing the problem led me to the following: If I set a page size of 300 in
my ldapsearch (where localhost:3890 is my slapd running slapd-meta):
ldapsearch -x -W -D "CN=admin,DC=example,DC=org" -E pr=300 -H
"ldap://localhost:3890/" -b "dc=a,dc=example,dc=org"
"(objectClass=inetOrgPerson)" uid
I get at most 300 results and the paging information is lost on the way. If
I set 300 to 1000 I get all of the results, because I have ~500 entries.

Doing an ldapsearch to the backand servers:
ldapsearch -x -W -D "CN=admin,DC=example,DC=org" -E pr=300 -H "ldap://
dc1.a.example.org/" "dc=a,dc=example,dc=org" "(objectClass=user)"
I get 300 results and a prompt to press enter, after pressing some enters I
can get every entries.

My backends are Active directories... :(

I don't think slapd-meta(5) can handle cross-target paged results.  It would require some non-trivial bookkeeping of the control's cookie which
<personal opinion>
I wouldn't consider worth the effort for such a useless control.
