  • It is not possible to deactivate 'simple paged results' on the RHDS server-side.
  • The option is controlled by the client and is disabled by default.

    $ ldapsearch -xLLL -H ldap://localhost -b dc=example,dc=com -E pr=5/noprompt dn

Root Cause

  • The 'simple paged results' option is part of the LDAP protocol and is supported by RHDS
