thanks for the reply.
I think it's a "lack of a feature" in the server. If
you want, raise an
issue about it, and we'll look at it when we can, :)
It’s actually required by Ansible ldap_attr module….
A work around is to do ldapsearch for the object and attr and
… but using state: exact for my particular usage is fine.
But expect other people using Ansible complaining about this lack of feature.
