Subject [jira] Commented: (DIREVE-230) Deletion of RDN and objectClass attribute
Date Tue, 23 Aug 2005 17:36:11 GMT
    [ ] 

Alex Karasulu commented on DIREVE-230:

>From Section 4.6 of RFC 2251:

 |   The Modify Operation cannot be used to remove from an entry any of
 |   its distinguished values, those values which form the entry's
 |   relative distinguished name.  An attempt to do so will result in the
 |   server returning the error notAllowedOnRDN.  The Modify DN Operation
 |   described in section 4.9 is used to rename an entry.

>  Attachments:
> It is possible to remove the RDN and the objectClass attribute from an entry via a modify
operation. Removing the objectClass attribute leads to an entry which can't be deleted.
> Attached you find a testcase which demonstrates the deletion of the objectClass on a
person entry.
> After this operation, it is still possible to lookup the entry with its DN, although
it has no attributes and deletion attempts cause an error: 
> LDAP: error code 54 - failed to delete entry cn=Charly Brown,dc=apache,dc=org
