Description Noriko Hosoi 2012-10-09 13:28:22 EDT
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

Performing an ldapsearch in 389-ds-base- in a container with > 5000 entries errors with result: 11 Administrative limit exceeded.

The dse.ldif is set for appropriately high limits.  I am using the Directory Manager user to perform the search.  The search is being performed locally but the limit is still getting hit
Comment 1 Nathan Kinder 2012-10-09 13:52:56 EDT
From the trac ticket:

Here are the exact steps to reproduce the issue:

[1] Add the resource limit entry:

dn: cn=anonymous limits,dc=example,dc=com
cn: anonymous limits
objectClass: top
objectClass: nscontainer
nsLookThroughLimit: 5000

[2] Then add this to cn=config:

nsslapd-anonlimitsdn: cn=anonymous limits,dc=example,dc=com

[3] Add 5001 entries

[4] do a ldapsearch for objectclass=*:

ldapsearch -D "cn=directory manager" -w password -xLLL -b "dc=example,dc=com" objectclass=* dn

Administrative limit exceeded (11)

$ /usr/lib64/mozldap/ldapsearch -D "cn=directory manager" -w Secret123 -s sub -b "ou=people,dc=anonymousresourcelimit,dc=example,dc=com" uid="anonymous manager" nsLookThroughLimit
version: 1
dn: uid=anonymous manager,ou=people,dc=anonymousresourcelimit,dc=example,dc=com
nsLookThroughLimit: 10

$ /usr/lib64/mozldap/ldapsearch -D "cn=directory manager" -w Secret123 -s sub -b "ou=people,dc=anonymousresourcelimit,dc=example,dc=com" uid=* dn | grep "dn: " | wc -l

$ echo $?

$ rpm -qa | grep 389-ds-base
