we have a java application using JNDI that uses the password modify extended
operation to change user passwords.

This runs fine against our masters but causes an assert when run against our
slaves that use chaining to pass the modify request to the masters.

  slapd: chain.c:199: chaining_control_remove: Assertion `op->o_ctrls != ((void
*)0)' failed.

Backtrace is as follows:

  Core was generated by `/usr/local/sbin/slapd -h ldap://:389/ ldaps://:636/ -d
1 -F /usr/local/etc/open'.
  Program terminated with signal 6, Aborted.

When running slapd with heavy logging we save the only difference to ldappasswd
which works fine against our masters is that JNDI sets the ManageDsaIT by

We were subsequently able to work around the issue by changing the default JNDI
behaviour so as not to set the ManageDSA IT control with:

   env.put(Context.REFERRAL, "throw");

As detailed in following related post and jndi documentation:


It would of course be helpfull if slapd would handle the situation slightly more
gracefully.  Even though the control is utterly useless in our case with
chaining it is the default on jndi so handling this case would be helpfull to
all java users out there.

I am not quire sure where this goes wrong exactly.

If anybody can write up a patch I would be more than gratefull to test as we
have a reproducible test setup on hand in our lab that we can run any time.

I can also retest with fuller debug symbols than above if required. Seems only
our modules hat debuginfo at the time of the backtrace.
