Yes, we listen on the global catalog port - currently the database is
identical - ie, all attributes are present.
And yes, we do support Ambiguous Name Resolution, where a search for
anr=foo expands into a much more complex search. This is used from some
search dialogs in outlook (it is an exchange feature originally) and in
the management tools.
