#41 OpenLDAP 2.0.7 & rolodap - minor bugs


Hi !

I've installed rolodap on our linux box running
OpenLDAP 2.0.7 and ran into some (minor) trouble:

- The rolodap.schema raised parse-errors starting
slapd: Some attribute definitions were incomplete (No
SUP info).

- The pre-add-check searches all object's in the base
DN. Raising errors, if users are stored in the same
tree. I've added objectclass=rolodapContact to the
search filter to avoid these irritating errors.

- The default files in the custom directory modifies
some ldap attributes that slapd complains about:
secretary, relationship, userscode, + some more. I
have removed these codelines (I don't need these

Do I need to add some more schema-extensions ? I use
core.schema, cosine + rolodap.

Thanks for your help,

best regards,


PS: sorry for my stumbling english

    OpenLDAP 2.0.7 has some incorrect attribute setings.
    facsimiletelephonenumber, postaladdress, homepostaladdress
    must be rewritten:
    Add an EQUALITY entry to fax (I copied the one from
    telehpone) and change the EQUALITY for (home)postaladress
    (Remove the LIST-Part).

    After these changes I was able to remove/delete these

    I haven't done much testing on 2.x openldap series. I know
    that there are problems with the schema for that version of

    My current advice would be to use 1.2.x OpenLDAP for Rolodap
    if you can't get 2.x to work.

    Thanks for the update by the way. Could you post your
    rolodap schema file? I can then add it to the distro.

    I have uploaded my schema files & my ./custom directory.
    These files work on Openldap 2.0.7.

    I removed some contact properties to make rolodap work. But
    these errors may be other schema bugs in openldap 2.0.7.
    I'm not sure about that.
