Description Paul Engle 2006-05-09 13:08:48 UTC
Description of problem:

I just installed Fedora Directory Server 1.0.2 on a RHEL4 server, and discovered
a problem with the core schema. The postalAddress attribute had a syntax OID of (Directory String), but RFC 2256 states that this
attribute should have syntax OID (Postal Address). 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start DS console
2. Under Configuration tab, select Schema from browser tree
3. Select Attributes tab
4. Scroll down to postalAddress attribute and observe Syntax name
Actual results:
Directory String

Expected results:
Postal Address

Additional info:

I was able to manually fix it by editing the 00core.ldif schema file.

Comment 1 Noriko Hosoi 2006-06-20 17:24:39 UTC
It looks we should review the entire schema files.  Just brief checking around
postalAddress, I could find these attributes mismatched the ones in 00core.ldif:

5.17. postalAddress
   ( NAME 'postalAddress' EQUALITY caseIgnoreListMatch
     SUBSTR caseIgnoreListSubstringsMatch
     SYNTAX )

5.28. destinationIndicator
   This attribute is used for the telegram service.
    ( NAME 'destinationIndicator' EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
      SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
      SYNTAX{128} )

5.30. presentationAddress
   This attribute contains an OSI presentation address.
    ( NAME 'presentationAddress'
      EQUALITY presentationAddressMatch

5.31. supportedApplicationContext
   This attribute contains the identifiers of OSI application contexts.
    ( NAME 'supportedApplicationContext'
      EQUALITY objectIdentifierMatch
      SYNTAX )
