- Thread-topic: passwd sync dirxml -> openldap - ;binary syntax
im about to
implement a datasync between nds8.7 (novell edirectory) and openldap. creating
and modifying objects in nds and the resulting action in openldap directory
but i ran
into one problem (indeed i think it's not a problem but a config issue),
that was mentioned on this list before.
i was not
able to get required information out of that posting. email@example.com spoke of hacking the
server. i am not too deep into "hacking", thus i am not sure if i have to edit
sourcecode, or hacking means a non-desirable configfile.
a password of a user-object in nds, dirxml will try to modify the
userPassword-attribute of that object in my ldap-tree. but dirxml tries
that with ;binary syntax. the result is this error in the log and a not
conn=1 op=1 RESULT tag=103 err=17 text=userPassword;binary: option "binary" with
type not supported"
this error, userPassword;binary is not recognized as userPassword attribute and
the action fails with unknown attribute type.
possible to force slapd to accept that syntax? does anyone know how i could
change the format of the string sent too slapd in the modify/add statement? as
far as i got, the doc of novell says that dirxml cannot transform data
formats. however is it possible to write and plugin xslt stylesheets that
will do transformations of the xlm documents sent to the dirxml ldap driver. i
don't know what to put in that file.
