Description Nathan Kinder 2012-06-20 17:59:46 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:


The directory server updates the modifyTimestamp on operations other than
operations.  See http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4512.  However, attributes can
modified by operations other than Modify.  For example, with password policy
enabled, a Bind operation may update one or more operational attributes in a
user's entry.  Admin's do not expect modifyTimestamp to be updated under this
and similar circumstances.  See also
