Re: LDAP referral chasing

This is a known defect and it is fixed by QCCR1E78435 "RTE overwrites the local configuration of the OpenLDAP REFERRALS option and always sets it to true".


All of this CR do is correctly restoring the setting value of LDAP_OPT_REFERRALS after build the LDAP connection.

It is released in SM9.30P4HF4 and 9.31GA.

 

the oringinal setting is in ldap.conf, .ldaprc - LDAP configuration file/environment variables.

SYNOPSIS
/usr/local/etc/openldap/ldap.conf, ldaprc, .ldaprc, LDAPCONF enviorment variable.

Hi All,

I will write a knowledge document about this topic.

I searched LDAP_OPT_REFERRALS, there is no customer visible document about this. Though this is configured by ldap people, it would be good for sm people to know this.
