Description

Split from another RM ticket 60652 ...

There seems to be a major change in TB38 to TB45 in LDAP search.
Running through omslapd log level 11 on 12.6.0 server ...

In TB38 the search filter is quite simple:

filter: (|(mail=*dda*)(cn=*dda*)(givenName=*dda*)(sn=*dda*))

In TB45 this has changed drastically:
filter: (&(|(cn=*dda*)(givenName=*dda*)(sn=*dda*)(mozillaNickname=*dda*)(mail=*dda*)(mozillaSecondEmail=*dda*)(&(description=*dda*))(o=*dda*)(ou=*dda*)(title=*dda*)(mozillaWorkUrl=*dda*)(mozillaHomeUrl=*dda*)))

The filter looks odd with some extra AND and () and a number of unknown attributes.

It is risky to change omslapd default behaviour to strip unknown attributes and carry on, instead a change to ldap.attribs more likely to just get it to work.

The nearest info I can find on the net, but out of date compared to TB45:
