Subject [jira] Created: (DIREVE-245) Add operation with capital letters in the suffix failed.
Date Wed, 07 Sep 2005 20:30:30 GMT
Add operation with capital letters in the suffix failed.

         Key: DIREVE-245
     Project: Directory Server
        Type: Bug
  Components: server main  
    Versions: 0.9.3    
    Reporter: Endi S. Dewata
 Assigned to: Alex Karasulu 

Set up a partition with dc=Apache,dc=Org as the suffix. Run the server then add the following

dn: ou=users,dc=Apache,dc=Org
objectClass: organizationalUnit
ou: users

The operation will fail with a return code of 32 (no such object).

When an add operation is issued, the server calls the DefaultContextPartitionNexus.hasEntry()
which in turn calls DefaultContextPartitionNexus.getBackend(). The current getBackend() implementation
requires that the DN parameter has to be normalized. However, the DN parameter coming from
hasEntry() is not normalized, causing it to fail finding the appropriate backend. So, either
the getBackend() has to be modified to normalize the parameter, or all callers have to be
checked to make sure they normalize the parameter first.
