Thanks for the clarification. We are now using the 'filter' option to
limit access
to the users that we want. It seems to be working well. We have something like

filter passwd (|(!(employeeType=fac))(uid=amahajan)(uid=vkavitha)(uid=...)...)

The rules are different from what I had written earlier, but they do
the required job
(much along the line of your suggestion of adding a new attribute).

Thanks again for your help.
