---------------------------------------------

Hi,

what if you use dc=smtp,dc=company,dc=com,dc="" instead of the DN you are using ? (note the
"" at the end) ?

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSTUDIO-161
>             Project: Directory Studio
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: studio-browser
>    Affects Versions: 0.8.1
>         Environment: LDAP Studio 0.8.1 on Windows XP MCE 2005
>            Reporter: Andy Deckowitz

> I'm trying to establish a Connection to an iPlanet LDAP server.  The Base DN for this
server is of the form 'dc=smtp,dc=company,dc=com,dc=' - note the trailing 'dc='.  This Base
DN is valid and mandatory - access to this server won't work without it.
> If I attempt the 'Fetch Base DNs' function, I get a java.lang.NullPointerException error
while fetching the Base DN.
> If I leave 'Get base DNs from Root DSE' set, the Connection fails to open with an error
of "Empty Value is not allowed! Can't set Base DN entry'.
> If I attempt to type in the actual Base DN, I get a popup that states 'Please enter a
valid Base DN'.
> If I attempt any other value for Base DN, the connection fails with a LDAP error 32 -
No Such Object.
> I am able to browse the server with the Novell ldapsearch and the LDAP Browser/Editor
v2.8.2, but not with an OpenLDAP ldapsearch 2.3.30, if that helps anything.
> I don't know if relaxing the Base DN validation rule on the Connection form is enough
to fix my issue as I see no way to test that scenario.  Hand-editing the connections.xml (putting
in a fake final dc=blah and then deleting the blah value from the file) does not seem to have
done the trick.
