Description Gerard Zonjee 2006-01-25 06:00:56 EST
Description of problem:

The Fedora Directory Server does not honor alias dereferencing requests

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
Fedora Directory Server 1.0.1

How reproducible:
An ldapsearch using the correct '-a' syntax

Steps to Reproduce:
# ldapsearch -a always -x -b
'uid=myuser,ou=Accounts,ou=Office,dc=company,dc=com' -s base -h
ns-slapd.company.com 'uid=myuser' 'uid'   

dn: uid=myuser,ou=Accounts,ou=Office,dc=company,dc=com
uid: myuser  

Expected results:
# ldapsearch -a always -x -b
'uid=myuser,ou=Accounts,ou=Office,dc=company,dc=com' -s base -h
openldap.company.com 'uid=myuser' 'uid' 

dn: cn=My User,ou=Persons,ou=Office,dc=company,dc=com
uid: myuser

Additional info: using the openldap ldapsearch or fedora provided ldapsearch
from /opt/fedora-ds/shared/bin does not make a difference. The fedora ds server
does not honor the -a setting, nor any -a setting (find, search or always) and
handles it by the default -never setting.

The same custruct with OpenLDAP slapd server v2.0.27-20 does work ok..
Comment 2 Rich Megginson 2006-01-25 10:18:42 EST
You are correct.  Fedora DS does not support aliases.  We will investigate
adding support for aliases to a future release of Fedora DS.
