Novell eDirectory 8.8 SP1 for All Platforms
Novell eDirectory 8.8 SP2 for All Platforms


Using an LDAP utility to query eDirectory for specific attributes and specifying an attribute by both its NDS name and an LDAP name (from an attribute mapping) the values in the attribute are returned duplicated.  eDirectory 8.8 SP2 FTF 1 does not fix this issue.  An example query could look like the following:

ldapsearch -h <ipAddressOfServer> -p <ldapPortNumber> -x uid uniqueid

Output looks like the following:

# test9909, testing3, novell, org
dn: cn=test9909,ou=testing3,o=novell,dc=org
uid: test9909
uid: test9909
uniqueid: test9909
uniqueid: test9909


This has been resolved in eDir 8.8SP3
