Description Noriko Hosoi 2013-08-28 14:32:57 EDT
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.
Comment 4 Sankar Ramalingam 2013-10-03 11:57:43 EDT
Successfully verified by upgrading from RHEL6.3 to RHEL6.5. server instances started successfully without any issues. Hence, marking the bug as Verified.
