connecting with multi-valued rdn
I have been experiencing an issue and I was told that it is likely a bug
in the server. I just wanted to give you all a heads up on it.
My dn's are of the form:
o=Tennessee Tech University,c=US
The display name must be unique at the time of creation, but can change
later and I didn't want the dn changing for other reasons.
The issue is that:
ldapsearch -x -W -D displayName=testuser+createTimestamp=20020706103625Z,...
ldapsearch -x -W -D createTimestamp=20020706103625Z+displayName=testuser,...
doesn't. (Switching the order of the attributes that form the composite dn
element.) The reference that they gave is Section 2.2 of RFC 2253 (LDAP
v3) which says:
2.2. Converting RelativeDistinguishedName
When converting from an ASN.1 RelativeDistinguishedName to a string,
the output consists of the string encodings of each
AttributeTypeAndValue (according to 2.3), in any order.
Where there is a multi-valued RDN, the outputs from adjoining
AttributeTypeAndValues are separated by a plus ('+' ASCII 43)
I've dealt with it in my program, but I thought you might like to know.
