Description Aneta Šteflová Petrová 2017-07-13 05:14:01 EDT
This solution explains support limitations for the OpenLDAP server: https://access.redhat.com/solutions/2440481

The guide says this: "For most deployments, Red Hat recommends Red Hat Directory Server. For further details about Directory Server, see Section 9.1, “Red Hat Directory Server”." This phrasing suggests that while DS is recommended for "most deployments", for (unspecified) other deployments, OpenLDAP would be fine. However, that is not the case, as suggested in the KBase solution.
