Subject Re: Is ApacheDS 1.5 case-sensitive and whitespace-sensitive?
Date Fri, 20 Jul 2007 07:03:40 GMT
Hi Markus,

> DN: uid=00370029,%20cn=users,%20dc=VERWALTUNG,%20dc=DOUGLASHOLDING

This is bad... Is this DN sent like this? This is very strange. It
looks like it has been escaped as if it was an URL

Yes, because % is not a valid cahr nor a valid escape char in a DN.

Well, I would first suggest that you try to see where those %20 are
generated from (it's not into AD, for sure !). If there is nothing you
can do, as DN are parsed during the ASN.1 decoding, and as the DN you
have will be seen as invalid, you will get an exception. The only
solution I see would be to modify the DN parser, which won't be easy

You are welcome !
