No support for RFC 4530 entryUUID attribute
Last modified: 2017-02-10 07:48:50 EST
Description of problem:
There is no support RFC 4530 entryUUID.
The nsuniqueid could serve this pourpose if properly aliased.
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create an entry
2.Retrieve the entry
This falls under the category of RFC correctness
Although nsUniqueId can help, the syntax of the values in that attribute is not the right one according to the schema.
Without rfc-4530, FreeIPA cannot be used for vCenter Single Sign-On in VMware versions below vSphere 5.5a.
While FreeIPA can be used with vSphere 5.5a and above, entryUUID is still required for certain functionalities to work. And, the missing entryUUID my be the cause of problems with other VMware products (vRealize Orchestrator a.k.a. vCenter Orchestrator) integrating with a vCenter Single Sign-On that is backed by FreeIPA but I have not been able to verify it yet.
OpenLDAP schemas supported in VMware vCenter Single Sign-On (2064977)
