Thanks for the prompt reply. We want to give access to two types of
users. All users in the IEOR group should be allowed. 9 users from ME
group also should be allowed, but no one else from ME should be
allowed. So we had

base ou=IEOR,ou=People,dc=iitb,dc=ac,dc=in
base uid=user1,ou=fac,ou=ME,ou=People,dc=iitb,dc=ac,dc=in
base uid=user2,ou=fac,ou=ME,ou=People,dc=iitb,dc=ac,dc=in
base uid=user3,ou=fac,ou=ME,ou=People,dc=iitb,dc=ac,dc=in
base uid=user10,ou=fac,ou=ME,ou=People,dc=iitb,dc=ac,dc=in

But the limit of 7 got exceeded. Can we get around this situation
using some trick? involving pam_authz_search for instance?

We were earlier using nss_ldap.conf without this problem (it does not
have this limit) but want to move over to nss-pam-ldapd.
Thanks again for your help.
