Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 457842
Setting DN from a preop add plugin
Last modified: 2016-03-17 13:33:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Changing the DN in an add preop is not really supported, but it can be done, just not with public interfaces (proto-slap.h). Please file a bug to have the operation_set/get target spec routines moved to the public interface file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Directory Server 8.0
Steps to Reproduce:
Getting and Setting the DN of an Entry
You can call the following two front-end routines to get and set the DN for an entry:
* To get the DN for an entry, call the slapi_entry_get_dn() function.
* To set the DN for an entry, call the slapi_entry_set_dn() function.
Doing this within a preop_add causes an error and the causes the slap pid to become dead.
Per triage: No plan to fix this in the short term.
