Novell iManager 2.6


Attempts to modify multiple attributes on any object (a user object, for instance) using the"Modify Object" task under "Directory Administration" role, are successful.However, LAN traces reveal that every modification is treated like a separate transaction and the number of ResolveName and ModifyEntry requests are equal to the number of attributes modified. Normally, all the ResolveName and ModifyEntry requests can be completed in a single iteration.
Problem is observed with Novell iManager 2.6 Maintenance Update 4 as well. It can also be observed with a custom plugin developed with Plugin Studio.


The issue has been reported to Engineering and is under investigation. There is currently no workaround possible.However, no functionality is affected because of this issue.
