No you can't see this either, in fact _this_ is the bit you actually want in order to be able to see the users containment, we _can_ see the CN, but we already have that!! A users container is not an ldap visible attribute - at least in eDirectory.
Which brings me back to: Is there some internal attribute/value that Shib has that is the users container _or_ their DN and which I can use in an AttributeDefinition??
