Empty Directory String - is it legal?
I'm trying to get Microsoft NetMeeting working with openldap, and I've
pretty much done it (using the shell backend), but I've still got a few
linguring issues. I need to create a schema and don't have Microsoft's
definitions. Two of the attributes (comment and location) can be left
blank, in which case the client will send them to the server with a
zero-length value. I've tried using Directory String for the syntax,
but the server barks at the zero-length values. So...
1. should Directory String take zero-length values? There's nothing in
RFC 2252 to suggest that it shouldn't.
2. should I use Octet String instead? The app never does searches
against this attribute
3. should there be a server option to turn off the rigid syntax checking
and just make these things warnings instead?
