Description John Dalbec 2002-01-04 07:28:52 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.79 [en] (Windows NT 5.0; U)

Description of problem:
Using the OpenLDAP ldbm backend (which appears to use gdbm), adding more than about 3400 members to an LDAP groupOfNames 
a single transaction fails with an I/O error.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH 7.1
2. (Optional) Rebuild/install RawHide OpenLDAP-2.0.19-1 package in 7.1
3. Define an LDAP groupOfNames object
4. Add 3500 members to the groupOfNames object in one ldapmodify transaction

Actual Results:  modifying entry <insert DN here>
ldap_modify: Can't contact LDAP server

ldif_record() = 81

Expected Results:  no error messages

Additional info:

Supposedly Berkeley DB 3.3.11 doesn't have this problem.
