Description Aaron Luchko 2007-02-22 20:02:22 UTC
Description of problem:

Null pointer in the console when trying to add an objectclass with a schema that
 has an objectclass with an attribute that is defined in another schema but the
objectclass doesn't inherit from any objectclasses in that schema.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fedora-ds and run setup (defaults are fine)
2. Add the following schema:
# cat /opt/fedora-ds/slapd-localhost/config/schema/61-maillist.ldif
dn: cn=schema
attributeTypes: ( NAME 'maildrop' DESC 'Email account or
username to deliver all email to' SYNTAX X-ORIGIN
'A Postfix Schema' )
objectClasses: ( NAME 'PostfixUser' DESC 'Email user with
a live email box at HCI' MUST (maildrop $ mail) X-ORIGIN 'A Postfix Schema' )

and restart the server

3. run startconsole and open the server localhost, in the directory tab select
localdomain and go New > Other
Select postfixuser from the list and hit Ok

You get the attached null pointer and the new object window never comes up.

I've added bug 229699 which describes a different error but with what is likely
the same underlying problem

Comment 3 Aaron Luchko 2007-02-23 03:08:37 UTC
Turns out that this bug only occurs when the objectclass doesn't inherit from
another (ie 'SUP top'), which it appears it's supposed to, and the attribute
thing has nothing to do with it.

It still results in a null pointer though I'm wondering if ns-slapd should even
start if the schema is invalid (which I think it is without the SUP).
