Re: Paged results and Solaris

I do not know if they released for S10; you'd be better off asking Sun.

Some users of Solaris may use LDAP clients based on the library

partially compatible with OpenLDAP, for various reasons. While there has
been a lot of good progress towards standards compliance (or at least
standards accommodation), paged results have had a long-standing bug. The
results cookie was improperly handed by libsldap, causing any results in
excess of the page size (1,000 in the case of libsladp) to be lost.

Rutgers has significantly more than 1,000 entries, and brought this
through Sun support channels. Patches were released for Solaris 9 last
week, which fix this issue

6278068 native ldap client: simple page mode broken in S9 and S10

I note this to openldap-software for users considering migration to OpenLDAP slapd(8) who may have experienced this behavior and falsely attributed it to OpenLDAP software. When properly patched, I can attest that Solaris nss and OpenLDAP work "out of the box" together.

Do you also know whether they released a patch for S10?

BTW, just for the record, the patch number for S9 is 112960-45.

Karsten. -- Well, here it is, 1983, so it won't be long before you start reading a lot of boring stories about people like Vance Hartke. Hartke is a governor or mayor or something from one of the flatter states, and the reason you'll be reading about him is that he's one of the 50 top contenders for the 1984 Democratic presidential nomination. These men will spend the next 18 months going around the country engaging in the most degrading activities imaginable, such as wearing idiot hats and appearing on "Meet the Press". "Meet the Press" is one of those Sunday morning public interest shows that the public is not the least bit interested in. It features a panel of reporters who ask questions of a guest politician, who wins an Amana home freezer if he can get through the entire show without answering a single question ... -- Dave Barry, "On Presidential Politics"
