    Thumbs up Large GAL

    i wonder if anyone has an issue like this?

    we and an edu with ~400 staff and ~5000 students (including alumni).
    Our GAL is external openldap with a sturucture like:

    Code:
    OurEDU --                 
                      |
                      -- People -- Staff
                                    |
                                    -- Students
    when I do a GAL search i need to start the search a OurEDU.People to include both staff/students.

    Some (Non-Academic) staff just want to search for other staff members and not students
    (because the list is so long). As a work around i ask them to search for:
    lastname@staff -> to return all staff with the lastname e.g. bloggs (bloggs@staff)
    lastname@students -> to return all students with the lastname e.g. bloggs (bloggs@students)

    Is there any other way around this i.m kinda stuck because the GAL search is global to a DOMAIN

    GAL search is:
    Code:
    GAL mode: 	
    External
    Most results returned by GAL search: 	
    100
    Server type: 	
    LDAP
    LDAP filter:* 	
    (&(|(mail=*%s*)(gecos=*%s*)(uid=*%s*)(cn=*%s)(sn=*%s*)))
    Autocomplete filter: 	
    externalLdapAutoComplete
    LDAP search base: 	
    dc=people,dc=ouredu
    LDAP URL: 	
    ldap://ourldap:389
    Any feedback appreciated
