Not strictly a 389 question but maybe 389 offers a solution.

I have a tree structure as follows:

On my client the I have the following searchbase in /etc/ldap.conf

If I login as user gerrard and look at the network traffic then every possible user is send to the client. This is not a problem yet but would be a problem on a slow link or with lots of users.

Changing the base to ou=people,dc=company works in that the search results returned is way smaller, but breaks everything else because group membership is not in that base.

Is there a way to dynamically have search basis when queries for certain data is done. How do you configure clients to be more selective when doing searches against a ldap directory.
