Description Florian Best univentionstaff 2015-06-29 17:27:54 CEST
If the DC master is not reachable (=offline) one cannot use UDM (CLI + UMC).
Both udm-cli and the UDM UMC-module are raising/showing a traceback:
...
SERVER_DOWN: {'desc': "Can't contact LDAP server"}
Comment 1 Florian Best univentionstaff 2015-06-29 17:33:32 CEST
Quoting the original feedback:
"""
Situation: 
- UCS 4.0 Domain Master un UCS 4.0 Domain Backup
- Domain Master ist abgeschaltet 
- Domain Backup produziert diesen fehler, sobald man auf eine UDM Konsole mit LDAP Link geht (User, Gruppen)
- Verhalten auf 2 komplett verschiedenen Umgebungen getestet! Kein einzelner Bug (allenfalls eine systematische Fehlkonfiguration, aber …) 

Sprich, der Domain Backup Server ist wertlos, da er ohne Domain Master nicht funktioniert 

LDAP:
- Das LDAP ist vollständig un korrekt synchonisiert!
- ldapsearch auf Backup funktioniert tadellos - auch bei abgeschaltenem Master
- "univention-directory-manager users/user list”  funktioniert nicht! (ist wohl der identische Fehler wie unter, welcher via GUI produziert wurde)

Versionen:
- 4.0-2 errata 205 und errata 213 getestet; selbes Verhalten
"""

To modify something in LDAP UDM needs write access, which is only available on DC Master.

What is the objective here? A better error message, or read only functionality?

I think read only functionality should be provided.
