Director doesn't keep track of username -> IP mappings. It keeps track of CRC32(username) -> IP mappings. So if you want to list user -> IP, doveadm needs to get a list of all usernames so it can map them to the CRC32 (which of course isn't necessarily 1:1). So either you need to make "doveadm user '*'" working (in sql/ldap you have iterate_* settings) or you need to put all the usernames into a file and give -f file parameter to doveadm director map.

I know there are at least two production installations and I haven't heard complaints for months, so I guess they're working.
