Re: modifyTimestamp limitations

Thank you Frank for replying, I already tried it on 2.1.12 and it didn't work.
But I wonder if there is any implemented ordering rule that can be used for a user defined time stamp.

Is this a limitation in the LDAP specification it self, or is it OpenLDAP

In the 2.0.27 source code (servers/slapd/schema_init.c) the ordering rule for generalizedTimeOrderingMatch is not implemented. Instead, the code uses caseIgnoreIA5Match. This is NOT an ordering match, so you can't do what you are looking for. Since this is in violation of the LDAP specification, it is an OpenLDAP problem (in my opinion).

I haven't looked at the 2.1.x source code yet, so I don't know if it has been fixed there or not.

Since 2.1 was just recently marked "stable" immediately after the third
release to fix bugs in as many days, I've been a little slow to rush to
upgrade my production servers...
