subject says it all. If i already have a contact with the same
lastname in the directory, i can't add another entry with
the same lastname. Is this normal? Did i configure something
wrong? Otherwise rolodap work really great! I use
The problem is that you did not create the roloplastuid record. Without that record, every uid in the contacts directory is appended with the number "1" so you have:
and when you try to create another "Smith" rolodap attempts to create another uid for "Smith1" and faults.
With the roloplastuid record, uids are named:
so that even two entries with the same last name will have unique uids.
The roloplastuid record should have been created if you imported the sample ldif (though it somehow didn't in mine, but I did it piecemeal so I don't know how widespread this issue is.) To create it, create an ldif file called ldiffilename (or whatever) that contains the following:
dn: cn=roloaplastuid, o=contacts.gburton.net
rolodaplastuid : 0
Import it with the following command:
ldapadd -f ldiffilename -xv -h ldapserver -D "cn=manager,o=contacts.gburton.net" -w password
where ldiffilename is whatever you named the ldif file from above; ldapserver is you server's ip (localhost will usually work); contacts.gburton.net is your base DN; and password is the manager password.
"gregg_burton" + at + "snet.net"
