Thanks for your answer, and sorry for not being clear.

Say I (dn: uid=gnarea,ou=directors,dc=example,dc=org) also belong to 
ou=sysadmins,dc=example,dc=org and ou=betatesters,dc=example,dc=org. How can I 
get the set of all the Organizational Units I belong to?

I'm looking for something that if I give the  
"uid=gnarea,ou=directors,dc=example,dc=org" DN, it returns a tuple/list made 
up of the items: 'directors', 'sysadmins' and 'betatesters'.

I need this because I'm using group-based authentication in my application.

Thanks in advance.
