(ITS#4670) Problem with nisNetgroupTriple SYNTAX definition according to Sun support

Full_Name: Nathan Neulinger
Version: 2.3.27
Submission from: (NULL) (

The definition of the nisNetgroupTriple in nis.schema is incorrect according to
Sun technical support. They has us change this entry in the schema from:

attributetype ( NAME 'nisNetgroupTriple'
       DESC 'Netgroup triple'
       SYNTAX )


attributetype ( NAME 'nisNetgroupTriple'
        DESC 'Netgroup triple'
        EQUALITY caseIgnoreIA5Match
        SUBSTR caseIgnoreIA5SubstringsMatch
        SYNTAX )

Is there a more appropriate way to resolve this? (It was resulting in netgroup
searches not being decoded properly in the LDAP session.) If this is an
appropriate fix, can y'all integrate it into the distributed nis.schema so that
we don't have to maintain the change locally?
