Novell eDirectory 8.8 Support Pack 2 for All Platforms


- LDAP queries for"groupmembership" attribute are extremely slow on Novell eDirectory 88 Support Pack 2 compared to older versions of Novell eDirectory in the same tree.

- The eDirectory 88 SP2 server has Presence and Value indices on the groupmembership attribute.

- From eDirectory traces with RECM (Recman, Storage Manager), LDAP and TIME tags, it appears that the query is passed on very quickly to the eDirectory database engine (FLAIM) and that index determination for the query is also fast. However, the query still takes a long time to process.


The fix for this problem will be included in the upcoming Field Test File for Novell eDirectory 88 Support Pack 2 and any future eDirectory Support Packs.
