Moves#The IDM driver was first written to support Netscape/iPlanet/Sun LDAP directories, none of which allow entries to be moved, so initially there was no need to support it in the driver either.
Since then, Novell added support for additional LDAP directories which DO allow entries to be moved, most notably OpenLDAP and OID. The work was done in the driver shim to allow moves to work on the subscriber channel, but not the publisher channel when using a changelog.
It is absolutely true. Moves have never worked on the publisher channel of the LDAP driver when using a changelog. Plans are to implement this in a future release.
