Description Stefan Gohmann univentionstaff 2014-07-17 08:52:08 CEST
The creation of an S4 object is split into multiple LDAP operations. If the first creation was successful and the later modification failed, then the object is not complete in S4. The later back synchronization from S4 to LDAP will perhaps overwrite/delete attributes.

One possible solution would be to mark an object as successful created after the successful first sync.
