Can anyone steer me in the right direction?
As a complete aside, I'd note that your old method of organization is
generally better long-term than your current method of organization. How
are you categorizing people who belong to multiple organizations? How do
you handle organization name changes? Etc. In administering a number of
different directory servers over the years, I've found it to be better to
be much more general in your categorization (as in your old DIT) with
attributes inside the entry indicating such things as what organization(s)
the individual belongs to, then to being more specific in the
categorization of people, as things (such as organization names) tend to
change over time, and if you've developed applications that depend on the
organizational tree structure, they become quite a pain to maintain.
