Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux


During the migration of printers from a Netware 6.5 sp7 server to an OES 2 server, LDAP returns the message:

[2009/07/02 15:43:56.699] Search size limit exceeded

[2009/07/02 15:43:56.699] Sending operation result 4:"":"" to connection 0x5f44d00
In order to see this message you need to enable LDAP tracing in ndstrace on the target OES 2 server.
This only occurs if the target source has more than 1000 objects in the container.


Fixes for this issue will be released into the normal patch distribution channel, in the meantime you will need to contact Novell Technical Services for the patch. Alternatively, if possible, reduce the number of objects in the context so that there are 1000 or fewer objects

Additional Information

This issue is not limited to the migration of iprint objects, DHCP migration is also impacted by this issue.
