How to get the Remote Backend DN for a User in OVD?

Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) 11g, e.g.,

OVD virtualizes multiple Active Directories (ADs).  The ADs have different domains, but OVD has a single domain; that is:

AD1: dc=mycompany,dc=com
AD2: dc=mycompany,dc=uk
AD3: dc=mycompany,dc=eu

The OVD domain virtalizing these ADs is:

OVD: dc=mycompany,dc=com

In OVD, these adapters are mapped as:

OVD-AD1: ou=usa,dc=mycompany,dc=com
OVD-AD2: ou=england,dc=mycompany,dc=com
OVD-AD3: ou=europe,dc=mycompany,dc=com

All the above work fine.

But users in OVD all display their OVD domains, whereas would like to see the actual remote AD distinguished name for all the AD users.

Is there a configuration to accomplish this?
