Aliases with IBM Directory Server 5.2
I have a question concerning aliases. I'm using IBMs Directory Server 5.2. I created the tree that you can see here:
Now I search for cn=DEWE1234 and get returned the dn of Stephan Keller + the dn of starting point of the search (here dc=users):
ldap://.../cn=Stephan Keller, ou=FOI,...,o=zsto konzern,dc=users, l=DEWE,..., o=zsto konzern
Of cource this dn does not exist within the directory. Following this dn occurres an error like this:
Because of this behaviour of the directory server, any applications return errors if they try to follow these aliases. How can this be disabled?
