[389-users] Problem browsing LDAP with Outlook

When configuring Microsoft Outlook (not Outlook Express) to access an LDAP directory, there is an option to 'Enable Browsing (requires server support)'.  If this option is chosen and the directory server supports it, then you should be able to open the LDAP address book and page up and down through the results.  I have been unable to get this working properly with 389 DS.

When I try to browse from Outlook against the 389 DS directory, I am able to see the first page of results perfectly.  However, if I move to the next page, only the first object returned will have any attributes included, and all of the rest of the objects in the page will have no attributes.  I have a test perl script that duplicates this functionality as well.

I can get this to work properly with an older version of Netscape Directory Server, and I can get it working with OpenDS.  Since 389 DS advertises support for the controls that are required for this to work, just like the other two servers, then I would expect it to work there also.

Has anyone out there gotten this to work with 389 DS?  If so, can you share if there was anything special that you needed to do to get this to work?  I'm trying to determine if this is a bug in the server, or if I'm just missing something in the configuration.
