Description Stefan Gohmann univentionstaff 2018-02-14 21:32:28 CET
The following error occurred on a customer system which is joined into a German MS AD domain:

  LDAP Error: Invalid syntax: userPrimaryGroupPreset: value #0 invalid per syntax

It happened in a Kopano join script while creating the Kopano template:

+ ucr_varname=domainusers
+ ucr_varname=groups/default/domainusers
+ /usr/sbin/univention-config-registry get groups/default/domainusers
+ result=Domänen-Benutzer
+ [ -n Domänen-Benutzer ]
+ echo -n Domänen-Benutzer
+ univention-directory-manager settings/usertemplate create --ignore_exists --position cn=templates,cn=univention,dc=foo,dc=bar --set name=Kopano Account --set mailPrimaryAddress=<username>@foo.bar --set kopano-role=user --set unixhome=/home/<username> --set primaryGroup=cn=Domänen-Benutzer,cn=groups,dc=foo,dc=bar
LDAP Error: Invalid syntax: userPrimaryGroupPreset: value #0 invalid per syntax
+ die

Move to 4.3-0-errata. If a UCS 4.2 backport is needed, please clone this issue.
Comment 2 Felix Botner univentionstaff 2018-04-17 12:07:05 CEST
yaml - 64d63948f86c26f1d891a9f171706dd7fd27e712
univention-ldap cbe7facb8ec35353ad06a5bcbf895fa905b636b8
 changed syntax of userPrimaryGroupPreset to DirectoryString, not indexed, so
 no index update necessary

As far as i tested it, the "--set primaryGroup" for user templates is no longer necessary, the correct default group is used if a user is created based on the template even if the template has no primaryGroup
Comment 3 Erik Damrose univentionstaff 2018-04-26 17:13:10 CEST
OK: userPrimaryGroupPreset in usertemplates changed from syntax to (utf-8 encoded string)
OK: kopano4ucs joinscript is executable, user sync + new user works,  primary group is correct.
OK: Yaml (i fixed the line length)
