Description of problem:
I'm trying to use system-config-users to create new users/groups in an
LDAP directory.

I can successfully view a test user created manually on the LDAP
server; but on trying to create a new one I get this:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libuser-0.51.7-7.1.1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up LDAP server, populate it with root DN, plus people and
groups entries (non-trivial task)
2. Set up /etc/libuser.conf so that the LDAP stanza points at the LDAP
server
3. Run system-config-users and try to create a new user
    

Actual Results:  New user is created

Expected Results:  Fails to do anything, get this output:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-users/userWindow.py", line 358, in
on_userWin_ok_button_clicked
    self.parent.ADMIN.addUser(userEnt)
RuntimeError: error modifying LDAP directory entry: Invalid syntax

Nalin: do you have any idea on when/if this is likely to be fixed?

I'm working on LDAP right now, I hope to have a complete
and reliable backend within a month (a very conservative estimate).
Comment 3 Miloslav Trmač 2004-09-27 14:07:27 EDT
libuser-0.52.1-1 should have a good-working LDAP backend.
