Description Roel Gloudemans 2003-11-08 05:29:30 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
On my RedHat 9 you could add mail aliases to the LDAP directory when
using LDAP for authentication etc.

When migrating the LDAP directory from RH9 to Fedora I ran into the
following problem:

The objectclass nisMailAlias and rfc822MailMember attribute are no
longer present. I had to take the rfc822-MailMember.schema file from
the /etc/openldap/schema/redhat directory of a RH9 box (and add it to
the slapd.conf file) to enable storage of mail aliases

(The PADL.com conversion scripts also fail)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.slapcat of a LDAP directory containing mail aliases
2.slapadd of the LDIF file on a Fedora box

Actual Results:  Error message

Expected Results:  No errors and a filled LDAP directory

I think this bug is similar to bug 109656.
Comment 2 Chan Min Wai 2003-12-19 11:23:15 EST
Oop Sorry
According to changelog
* Sat Sep 13 2003 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin@redhat.com> 2.1.22-6
  - drop rfc822-MailMember.schema, merged into upstream misc.schema at
some point

So this might be the solution.
Comment 3 Roel Gloudemans 2003-12-19 11:42:05 EST
You're right. Adding 

include /etc/openldap/schema/misc.schema

to slapd.conf 

also solves the problem. Question is if this should be done by default
(or at least included in the docs)
Comment 4 Paul Gear 2004-01-01 17:43:34 EST
Add my vote for making this the default, since it preserves
compatibility with previous behaviour.
