LDAP Filtering with HP LaserJet 500

So, I'm attempting to use an LDAP filter to filter out addresses that have "hide from exchange address lists" checked, because it seems the printer doesn't do this by default. I have thus far composed two queries. The first is
 
(&(&(&(objectClass=group)(!(groupType:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2147483648)))(!(MSExchHideFromAddressLists=TRUE))))
 
This one works fine in my active directory environment and when I enter it into the printer. The second query is this:
 
(&(objectClass=user)(objectCategory=Person)(!msExchHideFromAddressLists=TRUE))
 
This one works fine in my active directory environment, but does not work when I enter it into the printer. I plan to ultimately combine these two queries, like so:
 
(|(&(&(&(objectClass=group)(!(groupType:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2147483648)))(!(MSExchHideFromAddressLists=TRUE))))(&(objectClass=user)(objectCategory=Person)(!msExchHideFromAddressLists=TRUE)))
 
This query works fine in active directory as well, but will not work in the printer. I need to figure out why the printer won't take these queries.

Does a basic

(&(objectClass=user)(objectCategory=Person)) work for all users?  I'm talking about in the printer.

Do they use the same syntax as you are using in ADUC?

Thanks

Mike

Yes, basic queries work ok. As far as I know, it uses standard LDAP query syntax, but it's possible there's something a bit different that I'm unaware of. I haven't been able to find any info online about how the printers treat LDAP queries, so I'm kind of shooting in the dark.

This one apparently isn't an easy one. I was hoping someone out there had a bit of experience with LDAP queries on these printers.

I wish I could help more but don't have a printer to test with so I don't want to make up the answer.

To update everyone, I've basically figured out a workaround/solution. It seems the printer doesn't like the (!msExchHideFromAddressLists=TRUE)) portion of the query when applied to users. It works for groups. Since the original issue came to my attention because a user selected a hidden group in the printer, I've applied this filter:

(|(&(&(&(objectClass=group)(!(groupType:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2147483648)))(!(MSExchHideFromAddressLists=TRUE))))(&(objectClass=user)(objectCategory=Person)))

This works. I'd still like to know why it won't let me filter users that are supposed to be hidden, but at least I've got the groups fixed.
