Advanced Filter in Object Selecter of iManager is limited to 100 results

Environment

Novell eDirectory 8.8 for All Platforms
Novell eDirectory 8.7.3 for All Platforms
Novell iManager 2.6
Novell iManager 2.5

Situation

When attempting to use the Advanced Filter feature in the Object Selector of iManager, if there are more than 100 results that would be returned, only the first 100 results are returned, and the rest are ignored.

If you look in the iManager trace logs, or with the appropriate DSTrace tags enabled, you may see a -714 error in conjunction with the iterator logic attempting to get the next results.    

Resolution

Some third party written tasks for iManager may use the Advanced Filter feature when opening an Object Selector dialog for finding their particular objects to operate on.  Currently the preferred workaround is to use the Search tab in the Object Selector dialog, instead of the Browse tab that comes up by default.  An alternate solution is to not use the Advanced Filter feature in the Object Selector dialog, but this will probably require the task to be rewritten, and may not be an available choice.

iManager 2.7 has resolved this issue for Novell written tasks.  It may still be occurring in any third party written tasks.
