Description Nathan Kinder 2012-07-23 21:03:44 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

The server rejects modifications to nsds5ReplicaStripAttrs (a replica agreement attribute added in #321).


$ ldapmodify -x -h localhost -D "cn=Directory Manager" -w 12345678
dn: cn=meTovm-028.idm.lab.bos.redhat.com,cn=replica,cn=dc\3Didm\2Cdc\3Dlab\2Cdc\3Dbos\2Cdc\3Dredhat\2Cdc\3Dcom,cn=mapping tree,cn=config
changetype: modify
add: nsds5replicastripattrs
nsds5replicastripattrs: modifiersname modifytimestamp internalmodifiersname internalmodifytimestamp

modifying entry "cn=meTovm-028.idm.lab.bos.redhat.com,cn=replica,cn=dc\3Didm\2Cdc\3Dlab\2Cdc\3Dbos\2Cdc\3Dredhat\2Cdc\3Dcom,cn=mapping tree,cn=config"
ldap_modify: Server is unwilling to perform (53)

Comment 1 Nathan Kinder 2012-07-23 21:06:44 UTC
This is associated with the new attribute that was added as part of ticket #321 (bug 782295).  This should be verified at the same time.

Verification should consist of trying to set nsds5replicastripattrs dynamically over LDAP as "cn=Directory Manager".

Comment 2 Jenny Severance 2012-08-28 13:23:20 UTC
added automated regression testcase to accept.sh
