Does ANR have to be enabled via configuration file, or is it enabled by
I have Samba 4 alpha 2 installed. I added 3 users: John Doe, John Doery and
Johnatan Doe and set their names and accounts as described in the HOWTO. The
givenName and displayName attributes were set correctly. Then I sent an LDAP
request (ldapsearch) with filter anr="John Doe" and got no results.

Creating the identical users on a Win2003 and sending the exact same request
returned 3 results - all three users, as it should be.
Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
