Description Nico Stöckigt univentionstaff 2019-11-08 12:42:45 CET
Environment: UCS 4.4-2 e333 with ad-connector

A 'CR/LF' in the 'CN' of an Object causes the Listener/Notifier-Replication to stall due to an invalid Translog/Transaction entry. The ad-connector should reject such values.
Comment 1 Ingo Steuwer univentionstaff 2019-11-18 16:02:26 CET
As linebreak characters follow the LDAP standards the replication has to support them. This needs to be fixed in listener/notifier.
Comment 2 Florian Best univentionstaff 2019-12-02 17:23:50 CET
This probably only happens for objects where the CN is part of the DN?
So a newline-carriagereturn in the DN causes the error?
Comment 4 Sven Anders 2019-12-03 08:24:59 CET
Yes it was in the dn. In Our Case, it was an Object in


Sorry I do not rember which one. And we did not notice it in our ticket.
