The LDAP "Presence" operator allows LDAP search operations to select entries containing a specified attribute. For instance, the LDAP filter "(mail=*)" can be used to retrieve all members with a mail attribute defined. However, applying the "Not" bolean operator to this "Presence Filter" does not work when you use a SQL Server based Site Server Membership Directory database. The filter "!(mail=*)" returns all entries with the mail attribute PRESENT instead of showing all objects with the mail attribute NOT PRESENT.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Site Server version 3.0. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
