Description Petr Vobornik 2015-11-19 17:39:07 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

Method: get_ipa_config() in ldap2.py does not work as expected.
The ipaconfig values are not cached and method always asks directly LDAP server.

The issues is that the *is* operator return false even if the connection is the same as was before. 
            config_entry = getattr(context, 'config_entry')
            if config_entry.conn is self.conn:
                return config_entry
        except AttributeError:
            # Not in our context yet

Comment 2 Petr Vobornik 2015-11-19 17:43:06 UTC
Causes that IPA command performs additional ldap search for server config for every ldap search done in the command. E.g., in user-add it is additional 12 searches. 

This has slight performance impact.

IPA server version::


Steps to verify ::

1. Fresh install ipa-server
2. Add IPA user 
3. tail DS access log, usually found /var/log/dirsrv/slapd-<INSTANCE>/access
4. perform operations like 'ipa user-show', 'ipa user-find' and 
5. Grep for string in DS access log
"SRCH base="cn=ipaconfig,cn=etc,dc=example.com" scope=0 filter="(objectClass=*)" attrs=ALL" 


6. Note that this string should appear once for each request / connection of ipa command.
