Re: AW: Invalid syntax (21)

Hi Claus,
Thank you for your valuable opinion.
I tried to "fix" the syntax problem by removing the _ from the username. It worked! However, I want to use the _ because this is my company's user naming convention. I have to point out that when I ran the early version of OpenLDAP (version 2.2-13), there were no syntax problems when I used the ldif with the nisNetgroupTriple that was defined. I just did a custom build of OpenLDAP (version 2.3-39). Then, I immediately encountered the invalid syntax problem when I triled to load the same ldif.
Do you have any thought on the wierd problem? Thanks.

You have

nisNetgroupTriple: (,luke_l,mydomain.com <http://mydomain.com/ <http://mydomain.com/> > ) which I would translate to: <empty>,username, domainname.

Perhaps you just have to add the hostname and not leave it blank?

Hi Dieter,

I tried several modifications but still couldn't get it working. Can you or anyone else help please? What's wrong with my syntax? Thanks.

The nisnetgrouptriple syntax is described in RFC-2307 as follows:

Values in this syntax are represented by the following:
nisnetgrouptriple = "(" hostname "," username "," domainname ")"
hostname          = "" / "-" / keystring
username          = "" / "-" / keystring
domainname        = "" / "-" / keystring

See RFC-2307 for examples.
