Re: multivalue - equal entries - permitted or not ?

Dear List,

i am trying to reenable an old application
that stores entries in some circumstances
twice. Lets say facsimileTelephoneNumber
with two entries that are equal.

facsimileTelephoneNumber[0] = +00 12345 43210
facsimileTelephoneNumber[1] = +00 12345 43210

Thats not a bug, its more a feature.
Sounds flawed as a feature, and in contrast with specifications of LDAP.
So, the old used server was a 2.0.x release.

I am trying to use it with openldap 2.1.x
(OS X 10.3 shiped), now.

Is it no more possible to at equal entries into
a multivalue attribute ?
I get errors with different applications

ldap_add(): Add: Type or value exists
because you're adding duplicate values.
inappropriate matching
because the attribute has no appropriate matching rule to compare values.
I appreciate any help.
Fix your application(s) and your data.
