attempting the following query at command line for an OVD store that maps an ODSEE dynamic group

ldapsearch -h -p -D -b o=SDS "(&(|(objectclass=seagateApplication)(objectclass=organization)(objectclass=groupofurls)(objectclass=groupOfUniqueNames))(uniquemember=uid=532500,ou=people,o=seagate.com,o=sds))" cn orclguid objectclass
