I'm attempting to add a new relationship (following the wisdom on page
248 of the User Application: Administration Guide (agpro.pdf) ),
however, I've struck an interesting issue.
The attributes I'm using in my new Entity Relationship are both DN's,
but I seem to be encountering an eDirectory "feature" which states "This
is per design. Only presence and exact searches are supported on
attributes with a DN syntax."

See
http://www.novell.com/support/search...200%2046119596
for more
information.

However, UA issues the following

Which clearly exposes the eDirectory feature.

Any thoughts on this?
Sincerely,
