Re: modify/add: <ATTRIBUTE>: merge error

Unfortunately, this is not possible since we can't easily reproduce the problem and we have over 40 replicas in production. I guess my question would be then what could cause this kind of behavior? I did notice that it is only occurring on the 10 most loaded servers.

recently, I've been gettings merge errors in our reject files when a new
member is added to a posixGroup object with lots of members (10,000+).
Here are excerpts from the reject file (some data has been scrubbed):

I would advise updating to the latest 2.3 stable release (2.3.20) and seeing if the issue still occurs. There have been many, many fixes since 2.3.11 was released (one of which addresses a DOS attack vulnerability), and it may be the issue you are seeing has already been resolved. Certainly, the developers won't be wanting to pursue whether or not this is an issue unless you can verify it still exists in the current stable release.
