Ralf, could you elaborate on this specifically? I can't really come up
with a situation where it's harmful to use paged results if they're
It's not harmful (other than that it might need a few more resource
the server side). But it doesn't gain you anything when using OpenLDAP on
the server side.
If the results don't exceed the page size (1000 records by
default), then the operation is basically identical to an unpaged
search. And if it DOES exceed the page size, not having paging support
would end up with incomplete (and therefore untrusted) results.
doesn't apply any different limits for searches using paged
results. So if the server is configured to only return 1000 result for a
normal search you will also only get 1000 entries at max for a paged
search (i.e. with a pagesize of 1000 you will only get one page and then
a SIZE_LIMIT_EXCEEDED error).
