When an update happens in AD, it's getting synced to syncope and then the LDAP search is getting
invoked. Even though the user exists in LDAP, it's returning null and because of that Create
is getting triggered. Can you please take a look at the configuration and spot anything that
is obvious ?

the two UIDs are the same.

This is exactly what I mean.
Thank you Emmanuel for your observation.
