The LDAP data cache does not provide for:
Reading the cache for searches where a list of entries is expected, for example, searching for attendees for a meeting. This type of search is subject to any LDAP delay. For instance, a newly created calendar will not appear in a calendar search if the LDAP search option is active and the search is performed within the delay period following the creation of a new calendar.
Reading and writing of the cache across multiple front-end servers. Each front-end server has its own cache, which is not aware of data in other caches.
The capability to handle a user who doesn’t always log into the same server. Since each server has its own LDAP cache, within the delay period, one cache will not know about the user's activities while logged into the another cache.
