Description Arvid Requate univentionstaff 2016-08-24 19:38:16 CEST
During analysis of Ticket#2016082321000589 we saw replication issues (for deleted objects) that are probably caused by the changes for Bug #41864.

On the DRS-replicating Samba/AD DCs showrepl showed WERR_BAD_NET_RESP for INCOMING changes on the domain partition of the UCS DC Master (S4-Connector).

log.samba on the DRS-replicating Samba/AD DC shows messages like these:

[2016/08/24 17:30:23.627065,  0, pid=3924] ../source4/dsdb/repl/replicated_objects.c:783(dsdb_replicated_objects_commit)
Failed to apply records: ../ldb_tdb/ldb_index.c:1216: Failed to re-index objectGUID in cn=username\0ADEL:96833c07-835e-4853-a2e5-2635b03957c5\0ACNF:96833c07-835e-4853-a2e5-2635b03957c5,CN=Deleted Objects,DC=ucsschool,DC=local - ../ldb_tdb/ldb_index.c:1148: unique index violation on objectGUID in cn=username\0ADEL:96833c07-835e-4853-a2e5-2635b03957c5\0ACNF:96833c07-835e-4853-a2e5-2635b03957c5,CN=Deleted Objects,DC=ucsschool,DC=local: Entry already exists

It looks like the changes for Bug #41864 cause the accounts to be re-created with the same objectSid but a different objectGuid and in the end that causes DRS-replication to block. Maybe it's also due to three or more Samba AD/DCs replicating.

See Bug 41864 Comment 7, we need to fix this.
Comment 2 Arvid Requate univentionstaff 2016-11-03 20:49:34 CET
Ok, the patch for Bug 42120 removes the ill-advised mechanism of object re-creation implemented for Bug 41864 that caused the this problem.

I had another look at the sibling Bug 41756, which allows the sync_from_ucs to happen for objects whose entryUUID has been marked as deleted in UCS but reappears. In UCS@school that can happen when a student account it moved from one school to another via UMC and then back again. This change is ok.

Even though Bug 35345 is still open and allows objects deleted and then re-created in Samba/AD to get synchronized back into OpenLDAP: They will get a different entryUUID three and the change of Bug 41756 doesn't apply and cannot cause any change in behavior, e.g. in standard UCS.
