Symptoms

-- Problem Statement:
DN mapping is not working for searches against Map DN Attributes in a join adapter

-- Steps To Reproduce:

  1. Create an OID adapter (will need groups with uniquemembers). For example, Remote Base is pointed at the root context of OID to get both groups and users from OID:
    ou=oid-ext,dc=xxxx,dc=xxx
  2. Create an AD adapter (needed to contain user that are in OID). For example, specify a Root of:
    ou=ad,dc=xxxx,dc=xxx
  3. Create join adapter for OID and AD with OID as the primary. For example, set the Root to:
    ou=oid,dc=xxxx,dc=xxx
  4. Specify "uniquemember,manager,secretary,owner" in the Map DN Attributes for the join adapter.
  5. View and search against a uniquemember of a group in ou=oid,dc=xxxx,dc=xxx (join adapter). You will see that you can view the information correctly for the uniquemember but you are not allowed to search for the uniquemember as it is using the DN for the uniquemember from the OID adapter (ou=oid-ext,...) when it should be using the join adapter (ou=oid,...)
