Novell eDirectory 8.8 for Solaris
Novell Identity Manager 3.5


Users are frequently (sometimes several times a day) moved to new locations. As part of the process, users are removed from groups and then added to groups associated with the new location.

Some modified groups will contain a member attribute that points to an EID which is not associated with an object in the eDirectory TREE.

When the members of groups that contain this invalid member attribute are accessed or listed using ldap, it will generate an Error: -618 when the invalid member attribute is retreived.


This problem has been reported to development.
