Description Florian Brand 2004-08-05 08:09:26 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
I have set up Openldap in a Master Slave scenario.
While trying to add an entry on the slave with ldapadd with a simple
bind I get the error-message. "Insufficient access to parent"
We have reseached the problem a bit. What happens.
ldapadd connects and authenticates to the slave.
When it sends the ldif it gets the referral to the master.
Then ldap add connects to the master and resends the ldif to the master.
The master then gives the erromessage, because ldapadd forgot to

pam_ldap can change passwords on via the slave, so the problem is
definetely on ldapadd

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure Master/Slave ldap 
2. ldapadd -f test.ldif -D <CN> -W [-x -C -v -d3] 
   [] options for debug messages, which show the described behaviour

Actual Results:  entry was not created

Expected Results:  entry is added

Additional info:

performing the command on the master works nicely.
Master/Slave have the identical configuration apart from the
master/slave specific bit.
Problem was verified on a different machine.
