Users and Groups Tab default binding for Fedora Console Bug?
Last modified: 2015-12-07 12:01:59 EST
Description of problem:
There seems to be a bug relating to Fedora Console relating to the Users and
Groups search Tab when your first run the console
Previously in 1.01 or 1.02 whne you click the Users and Groups tab and did a
search, you click on Advanced Tab. It tells you you are searching ldap://
hostname:389/dc=www,dc=xxx,dc=yyy,dc=zzz where dc=www,dc=xxx,dc=yyy,dc=zzz
is which you specified in the setup script.
Now with Fedora Directory Server 1.04, if you click Advanced tab in Users and
groups you can see that its bound to ldap://hostname:389/o=NetscapeRoot and
not the the one defined in the setup script. So when you do a search for users,
groups you be unable to find any.
Is there a way to change the lookup ldap://hostname:389/o=NetscapeRoot to
ldap://hostname:389/dc=www,dc=xxx,dc=yyy,dc=zzz where dc=www,dc=xxx,dc=yyy,
I had a look I thought it was handled by the mappings in the config
mapping tree where it has these values
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Seems applicable to Fedora Management Console in Fedora Directory Server 1.04, I
know it dosn't happen for 1.02 nor 1.01. I can't say much for 1.03 because I
havn't used it.
Should be reproducible after a fresh install of Fedora Directory Server 4 after
the setup script. Run the Fedora Directory Console
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC4 installation
2. Install IBM JDK 1.4.2 (rpm -ivh IBMJava2-142-ia32-SDK-1.4.2-3.0.i386.rpm)
3. Export Java variables to shell ie export JAVA_HOME=/opt/IBMJava2-142, export
4. Install the RPM for the appropriate distribution (rpm -ivh fedora-ds-1.0.4-1.
5. Run the setup for (/opt/fedora-ds/setup/setup) and setup using the defaults
6. Run the Fedora Management Console
7. Run the Directory Server, create a user or group on your dc=www,dc=xxx,
8. Go back to Directory Console, and click Users and Groups tab, do a search for
your user and group. Dosn't find it
9. Click on the advanced tab. You can see its bounded to the o=NetscapeRoot and
not dc=www,dc=xxx,dc=yyy,dc=zzz like previously.
the Directory Server Console, the Users amd Groups is bounded to ldap://
the Directory Server Console, the Users amd Groups should be bounded to ldap://
Its not a big deal as you can do a search on the Fedora Directory Server but was
wondering why it suddenly changed and if there was a quick way to rebind the
fedora console User and Group Tab.
On the Users and Groups tab, go to the User menu -> Change Directory... The
dialog box will allow you to change the base suffix.
And thank you for the very detailed bug report.
Is there a way to change this 'default' binding behavior, or shall I wait for it
to be 'fixed' in another release

It sounds like a bug, and the workaround is easy, so I suppose it will be fixed
in an upcoming release.
