[LDAP] Account to manage/create only specific users

Is there a possibility in openldap to allow a user to only create/manage specific LDAP users?

For example user "mailadmin" may only create/manage mail accounts in LDAP that are named like "m1342895"? Or a specific list of user accounts that are in a specific group?

Not that I'm aware of .. you could create a script that would validate/generate appropriate account names but you couldn't prevent someone from not using the script



add, create, manage, openldap, user
