Description Nathan Kinder 2012-06-08 21:11:31 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

If you try and setup chaining using the root DN, the callback returns -2, which is incorrectly seen as a "disk full" error and the DS is automatically shutdown.

Comment 5 mreynolds 2013-01-24 14:02:37 UTC
Setup chaining, and set the root dn (cn=directory manager" as the bind dn:


After setting up chaining/database link, make sure the DS is still running.
