Subject Re: [jira] Created: (DIRSERVER-1581) attribute type with trailing space in the description prevents apacheds from restarting
Date Tue, 16 Nov 2010 12:47:31 GMT
This might be due to the attribute value being binary rather than there
being an extra trailing space. Lookie here:

Note the description field is being used as a binary attribute and this is
probably why the error occurred on startup. Something is translating the
description field into a binary value instead of a directory string if that
space is present from the LDAP representation ==> ApacheDS LDIF format.
