Description German Parente 2017-02-08 09:08:01 UTC
Description of problem:

We have very often this situation at customer configs:

- conflict on user entry:


we unlink the entry (managed entries) to delete it definitively and:

ldapdelete -D "cn=directory manager" -W "nsuniqueid=dc5a4415-905211e6-aebbea4a-46cc96c4+uid=wcp6804,cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=psop,dc=be"
Enter LDAP Password: 
ldap_delete: Operations error (1)

We set internal ops log level and plugin error log to see:

[08/Feb/2017:09:42:35.033756579 +0100] referint-plugin - _update_one_value: entry cn=ipausers,cn=groups,cn=accounts,dc=psop,dc=be: deleting "member: nsuniqueid=dc5a4415-905211e6-aebbea4a-46cc96c4+uid=wcp6804,cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=psop,dc=be" failed (16)

there's no member of ipausers with the conflict. There's only the real entry.

But the entry to delete is memberof.

So, the only workaround is to disable referential integrity plugin.

The bug here is that the integrity is not there at adding the conflict. Why to check it at deleting it ?

Per IPA triage, this is a DS bug. That said IPA team team needs to find time to create a tool for automatic fixing of most common replication issues (which can be fixed automatically based on IPA context/knowledge).

closing as a dup of bz 1274430 as per ds dev meeting / bug council/review
