Re: (ITS#6334) hang during ldapmodify

The memberUids in this example are completely fictitious, so they don't
have any connection to the uids of real users.  The thing I find
particularly intriguing is that I can change whether or not the update
is successful by simply adding or removing a single digit on the last
memberUid.  If the last memberUid is 7 characters long (i.e. t247800),
the modification goes through fine.  However, if the last memberUid is 8
or more characters long (i.e. t2478000), then the operation hangs

We use GSSAPI for write authorization.  I sent a copy of our slapd.conf
file a few messages back, that should show the appropriate configuration

I'm not sure I understand the question.  Yes, account information is
stored in the slapd database I'm modifying, but not the specific entry
I'm modifying.  The actual authorization happens through GSSAPI, so
authorization for write access is actually happening via kerberos.  Does
this answer your question?
