(ITS#5293) ldapdelete issue
Full_Name: Chitra Venkatramani
Submission from: (NULL) (220.127.116.11)
I added a set of entries to the LDAP server, with sub directories, such as --
when I tried to do an ldapdelete command with -r option, I get the following
error for every entry in the server, although all the entries do get deleted.
ldap_search: Server is unwilling to perform (53)
additional info: critical control unavailable in context
On looking at the ldapdelete.c source code, lines 390 and 391 say
c.ldctl_oid = LDAP_CONTROL_SUBENTRIES;
c.ldctl_iscritical = 1;
Marking the iscritical flag to 0, makes the error go away.
I am not sure what this control does. This seems like a bug though.
If so, please let me know what the fix should be, and in which release it will
Please let me know if you need any more information.
