If the actual value doesn't matter, try using a collective attribute instead.
Thanks, this is exactly what I needed.
I got this working with slapo-collect. I had to hack the schema to allow the parent object (an organizationalUnit) to have the attributes that I needed (homeDirectory, loginShell, etc). I presume this is what you'd expect in this case?
Also, it appears that the overlay only looks at the parent object for the collective attributes, not up the tree. Again, I presume this is as expected but I wanted to double check.
Finally, I found a bug in 2.4.38. It's probably in the category of "don't do that." To test what happens when I need an exception, I tried adding a local DN with one of the collective attributes defined explicitly. When I search on it, slapd crashes. I'll open a bug with details unless you think I shouldn't.
