Description Louis Abel 2014-08-20 16:18:11 UTC
Description of problem:

Current /usr/share/openldap-servers/slapd.ldif that mentions in the Frontend database is missing an important objectClass. This causes issues when trying to add specific attributes that would be done on the frontend olc database just as olcPasswordHash.

It currently reads:
dn: olcDatabase=frontend,cn=config
objectClass: olcDatabaseConfig
olcDatabase: frontend

It should be:

dn: olcDatabase=frontend,cn=config
objectClass: olcDatabaseConfig
objectClass: olcFrontendConfig
olcDatabase: frontend

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install openldap-servers
2. Attempt to modify olcDatabase={-1}Frontend adding olcPasswordHash or other applicable attributes

Actual results:
modifying entry "olcDatabase={-1}frontend,cn=config"
ldap_modify: Object class violation (65)
        additional info: attribute 'olcPasswordHash' not allowed

Expected results:
modifying entry "olcDatabase={-1}frontend,cn=config"
(No errors)

Submitted as Upstream ITS #7933.


Comment 3 Sebastian 2014-09-30 08:17:34 UTC
As Upstream has already fixed this (new issue link: http://www.openldap.org/its/index.cgi/Build?id=7933), when can one expect the fix to arrive in RHEL 7?
