Error: -635 REMOTE_FAILURE during an LDAP query
Error: result: 80 Internal (implementation specific) error
Error:  NDS error: remote failure (-635)
LDAP queries without OR or AND statements for the attribute are working fine


Use ConsoleOne or iManager to  map the requested LDAP attribute to an NDS attribute on the Attribute mappings tab of the LDAP group object

Additional Information

Missing LDAP attribute mapping to the attributes in the query

If the attribute "mail" doesn't exist and you type in the following command:

ldapsearch -x -h host -p 389 -b "o=novell" -D user-w pwd mailbox=b* cn

then you get no errors.

If you use the following command, you get the -635 error:

ldapsearch -x -h host -p 389 -b "o=novell" -D user -w pwd "(|(mailbox=b*)(mail=a*))" cn
