Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: When enabling replication level logging, winsync prints out what version of Windows/AD it detects. If it detects win2k3 or later, it prints out "detected win2k3 peer". Consequence: This can be confusing if you are running a later version, such as win2k8 Fix: This patch changes the message to match this logic by printing "detected win2k3 or later peer". Result: The version string is now less confusing and accurate.

Description Sankar Ramalingam 2012-10-22 09:51:15 UTC
Description of problem: When winsync is configured, DS error logs prints wrong version of Windows server. It prints "windows_conn_connect : detected Win2k3 peer". Where as the version which is configured is windows 2008.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 389-ds-base-1.2.11

How reproducible: Consistently

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the latest build of 389-ds-base-1.2.11 on RHEL64.
2. Create an instance and configure winsync.
3. Set DS error logs with nsslapd-errorlog-level: 8192
4. Check the version of windows server - search for "windows_conn_connect" string in the DS error logs.
Actual results: It prints "detected Win2k3 peer"

Expected results: It should print "detected Win2k8 peer" or "detected Win2k8r2  peer" depending on what exact windows version is configured.

Comment 2 Rich Megginson 2012-10-23 17:45:16 UTC
Note that the detection is really looking for win2k3 _or later_, so the error message should say "detected win2k3 or later peer".

Comment 6 Sankar Ramalingam 2012-11-20 11:40:55 UTC
Upgraded the existing 389-ds-base package for the existing winsync setup and observed that the error message is changed.
windows_conn_connect : detected Win2k3 or later peer

Hence marking the bug as Verified.
