I had opened a ticket a while back with OIT and eventually got a response from Daniel LaRoe. He suggested one way to get a listing of INE people via edir.alaska.edu and LDAP was to do an advanced search with this query:
(&(|(uid=*Northern Engineering*)(unitDirectoryHeadings=*Northern Engineering*)(unitAlias=*Northern Engineering*)(unitDisplayName=*Northern Engineering*))(|(ou=routing)(ou=resource)(ou=departments)))
This only produces two records, each which point to a record with a clickable link of INE people. Some minutes after clicking on this link, edir will produce a list of people with their names hyperlinked to their edir record.
In short this is not the way to go as far as getting a list from UA HR records. I will pursue this more in a few weeks.
