When configuring Microsoft Outlook (not Outlook Express) to access an LDAP directory, there is an option to 'Enable Browsing (requires server support)'. If this option is chosen and the directory server supports it, then you should be able to open the LDAP address book and page up and down through the results. I have been unable to get this working properly with 389 DS.
When I try to browse from Outlook against the 389 DS directory, I am able to see the first page of results perfectly. However, if I move to the next page, only the first object returned will have any attributes included, and all of the rest of the objects in the page will have no attributes. I have a test perl script that duplicates this functionality as well.
I can get this to work properly with an older version of Netscape Directory Server, and I can get it working with OpenDS. Since 389 DS advertises support for the controls that are required for this to work, just like the other two servers, then I would expect it to work there also.
Has anyone out there gotten this to work with 389 DS? If so, can you share if there was anything special that you needed to do to get this to work? I'm trying to determine if this is a bug in the server, or if I'm just missing something in the configuration.

I'm new to 389-ds and last week downloaded and installed the software.
I have a running instance of the server, and I've added TLS/SSL. I've configured a CentOS 7 client to be able to query
the server using TLS/SSL, and all appears working.
I've created users and groups on the 389-ds server successfully. For each user and group, I've enabled posix attributes and my client
can see the unix users and groups using the "getent password" or "getent group" commands.
Now, here's where I'm getting tripped up..........
I need to limit which users have access to which systems. I've been trying to do this via memberOf group limitations.
I found the following online resource (https://thornelabs.net/2013/01/28/aix-restrict-server-login-via-ldap-grou...)
which is close enough to CentOS that the initial commands worked.
I enabled the MemberOf plugin and changed the attributes per the link, and restarted the system.
I created a test group (that I didn't enable a posix GID) and tried to add a single user via:
Right click on group -- > click Properties --> then Members --> click Add --> Search for user --> click Add.
When I try to go this route (which worked before enabling the memberOf plugin) it worked. Now it seems I get the error:
"Cannot save to directory server.
netscape.ldap.LDAPException: error resiult(65): Object class violation"
And the messages file throws the error (/var/log/dirsrv/slapd-<instancename>/errors:
"Entry "uid=test,ou=People,dc=int,dc=com" -- attribute "memberOf" not allowed
[17/Feb/2016:11:22:58 -0700] memberof-plugin - memberof_postop_modify: failed to add dn (cn=testgroup,ou=Groups,dc=int,dc=com) to target. Error (65)"
So it seems my server isn't quite using the memberOf plugin properly, but I'm not sure what else to enable. I'll have to solve this issue before
I even try to filter login access via groups on my client system.
I should mention that if I go under the advanced tab for one of the groups I created, I can add the the attribute "uniquemember", but I'm not sure what I
should set the "value" to be.
I've tried creating new users to see if I could set their "uniquemember" attributes, but no luck. It seems that I don't have the ability to set this attribute
on individual users, only groups.
This might not be the right road to head down when trying to restrict access to servers via groups, so I'm open to any suggestions.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
We have the following setup.
Active Directory Server in US.
389 DS Server in Italy.
We are able to access the Active Directory Server from 389 DS.
We installed the sync agreement. No body is touching the AD, the number of
objects that should copied is 21. But every time we are running the
replication agreement, the number of objects being copied is always
different. How can that be if there is no change happening at the AD
Is the replication done over UDP or TCP.
Also is it because of distance and delay that is causing the
If some can elaborate in this issue, it would be really helpful.
Specifically, I'm referring to the two incompatible schemas for rfc2307
vs rfc2307bis. In the past, it was possible to just delete 10rfc2307.ldif
from /etc/dirsrv/<instance>/schema and replace it with the file supplied
Now, with the new directory layout in 188.8.131.52, there is nothing to delete
in /etc/dirsrv/<instance>/schema. And since the two schemas are
incompatible, I can't load the other one by dropping it in there.
It seems the only thing I'm able to do is remove
/usr/share/dirsrv/schema/10rfc2307.ldif to get the other file to load.
That's global for all instances on the server, though. Is there any way to
make this change for just one instance?

At the moment we perform TCP health check via F5 on ports 389/636 (historical inheritance) – which isn’t sufficient for HA.
We are moving to an env where NSX and F5 may co-exist – and have an opportunity to re-work the LB health check for HA (on existing F5 and upcoming NSX).
If running NSX and/or F5 (or other load balancers) – how do you determine health on ldap node?
We have 2 read/write (1 active at given time) – replicating to N read-only nodes.
I'm still evaluating some options to securize dynamic nodes and I have some questions regarding certutil and nss databases:
Can I create NSS databases on any directory/server and then move files to "/etc/dirsrv/slapd-instance_name" ?
If cert8.db and key3.db files are found in that directory are they used automatically by slapd process on reboot?
If both answers are affirmative I'll try to script it and hook it within my node creation flow.
is there any other detail I should take care of with this approach?
I'm trying to upgrade my environment and I've reinstalled my CentOS
machines to CentOS 7 except for one. I've got my DNS for my LAN working
just fine. So now it's time for Directory Server.
What is a GOOD tutorial to follow? My environment includes 26 physical
and KVM virtual machines; 4 Windows 7 machines and 1 ArcaOS (OS/2)
machine. What is a DS configuration to go for?
