Description Noriko Hosoi 2013-08-28 18:32:57 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:


I was trying to set up replication for IPA between 6.3 and F-18 which was running a pre-release of 1.3.1 from daily repo. The replication succeeded but the resulting server would not start with the error:

08/Apr/2013:16:55:05 -0400] - Entry "cn=RootDN Access Control,cn=plugins,cn=config" -- attribute "nsslapd-plugin-depends-on-type" not allowed

I downgraded the packages and the installation was fine.

I can't be sure if this is related or not, but when the 6.3 server failed to install I tried a 6.4 instance. Upon restarting dirsrv in 6.4 I see this on stdout:

[08/Apr/2013:17:07:46 -0400] attr_syntax_create - Error: the EQUALITY matching rule [caseIgnoreIA5Match] is not compatible with the syntax [] for the attribute [dc]
[08/Apr/2013:17:07:46 -0400] attr_syntax_create - Error: the SUBSTR matching rule [caseIgnoreIA5SubstringsMatch] is not compatible with the syntax [] for the attribute [dc]

Specifically, this can be verified by attempting to update from the 389-ds-base-1.2.10 packages from RHEL 6.3 to the 389-ds-base 1.2.11 packages from RHEL 6.5.  If the server starts up fine, the fix is verified.

Successfully verified by upgrading from RHEL6.3 to RHEL6.5. server instances started successfully without any issues. Hence, marking the bug as Verified.
