Re: Problem with CN containg multiple spaces
Robert Waldner wrote:
As per directoryString syntax (the syntax used by the "cn" attribute
inside your DN), multiple spaces are treated as a single space when the
DN is normalized/prettified. As a consequence, although differently
represented, the two DNs you show are exactly the same when compared.
I have a situation where I need data from an "Active Directory" mangled
and then stored in a local slapd instance.
The problem is that there are a couple DNs which only differ in the
amount of spaces in the CN, eg
When I try to add a group with both of those as members, all I get is
"value #n provided more than once". It also fails when I try to add the
second one as an organizationalPerson.
AFAIU the RFCs, every field value is basically a string, with a couple
special characters escaped. A blank not at start or end of the string is
not one those characters.
Any hints on how I could get this working?
