Doc Text:
Directory Server no longer logs a warning when searching a non-existent DN in "entrydn" attributes Previously, searches for a non-existent distinguished name (DN) set in the "entrydn" attribute caused Directory Server to log a warning in the error log. With this update, the server correctly handles situations when an "entrydn" attribute fails to find a match. As a result, the server no longer logs a misleading warning.

Description Ming Davies 2018-04-20 13:17:44 UTC
Description of problem:
After updating 389-ds-base in RHDS10 from 1.3.6.1-28 to 1.3.7.5-19, the errors log is flooded with:

[13/Apr/2018:15:23:18.446577844 +0200] - WARN - keys2idl - recieved NULL idl from index_read_ext_allids, treating as empty set
[13/Apr/2018:15:23:18.447111033 +0200] - WARN - keys2idl - this is probably a bug that should be reported
[13/Apr/2018:15:23:18.449436104 +0200] - WARN - keys2idl - recieved NULL idl from index_read_ext_allids, treating as empty set
[13/Apr/2018:15:23:18.450191611 +0200] - WARN - keys2idl - this is probably a bug that should be reported

The message appears every time if the search filter is based on the attribute entrydn, and with a dn that does not exist.
