Fixed In Version: 389-ds-base-
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Using the Referential Integrity plugin with a delay time greater than 0, and doing an LDAP RENAME operation on a user entry where that user's entry DN is specified by one or more groups under the scope of the Referential Integrity plugin. Consequence: The group entries still have the old user entry DN, not the new one. Fix: The code was writing the literal string "NULL" instead of an empty field to the referential integrity changelog in the newsuperior field. The fix is to write an empty field when there is no newsuperior. Result: LDAP RENAME operations work when Referential Integrity is enabled with delay time > 0.

Description Rich Megginson 2012-07-19 14:17:50 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

When the referential integrity plugin is enabled by default (with nsslapd-pluginarg0: 0) it seems to work fine for simple modrdn operations.

However when i put a delay of nsslapd-pluginarg0: 30 (or some other value) it does not work or works incorrectly (case-sensitivity or even the resulting DN cut down after the update to smth like "ou=Users,(null)").

I think it has something to do with how the plugin writes the DNs and changes to the file and how it treats these values afterwards.

Tested with (from SVN) on CentOS 5.8 x86_64. When the rpm will be available i'll be able to make some simple test cases (this time i have tested on our production data).

Bug 841600 - Referential integrity plug-in does not work when update interval is not zero
added refint tests that run the refint_small and refint_large tests with
a delay time

Comment 3 Amita Sharma 2013-01-29 06:57:09 UTC
Mbo startup     100% (3/3)            
MemberOf run     100% (75/75)            
MemberOf cleanup     100% (1/1)
All tests passed in the acceptance with 389-ds-base.x86_64 0:
build on rhel64.

Hence marking bug as VERIFIED.
