Are the LDAP Virtual List View and Server Side Sort Controls supported?
Even though the VLV and SSS controls are not fully supported in eDirectory 8.8, 8.7.3 and previous versions, the LDAP Server will respond to VLV and SSS requests. Novell chose to retain the functionality, as some developers were willing to work within the confines of the limitations and defects.
The known limitations of VLV and SSS are listed below. They apply to eDirectoy 8.8 and all previous versions.
1. The LDAP Server must have a copy of all objects within the search scope, in order for the VLV/SSS control to work. For example, the server would need a copy of every replica, if the search scope started at the top of the tree. If the LDAP Server doesn't have a copy of all objects in the search scope, it will return error 53 when the VLV/SSS control is used in a search request.
13 May 2009 sperrin added SSS to detailed description of problems since I believe they occur with either VLV or SSS
