Environment


Novell SecureLogin
NSL6.x
NSL installed in LDAP mode
Context based Search enabled per tid 3790292

Situation

Is there a limit to the number of items returned by an LDAP search in response to an LDAPAuth request?

Is there a limit to the number of entries the NSL/ LDAP client will look through, or a limit to the number of reponses the ldap server will supply?



Resolution

There is no limit to the number of search entries ldapauth looks through and no limit to the number of responses the ldap server supplies. The only limits would be contraints imposed by the operating system and its memory management.

NSL/ LDAP (LDAPAuth) uses LDAP_NO_LIMIT as a parameter in the ldap search function for the number of entries to return.
