The rwm overlay should handle this. Point your broken applications to a
unique suffix (e.g. dc=example,dc=org,dc=brokenapps), which overwrites the
incoming DN to use eduPersonPrincipalName instead of uid. See slapo-rwm(5).
You could also use alias if the application supports them. With LSC (
) it is really is to create a synchronization task
that will create aliases in a new branch.
