dn of user

Postby ratnashilpa » Tue May 01, 2007 6:57 am

hi all,
i have got a problem. we have created a user in the People hierarchy of SunOne.
when we click on that user,we get to see its dn below,which shows "uid=user,ou=People,dc=mydomain,dc=com" .......
but when we right click on the user and try to edit,,, we get to see the user dn as "uid=user,ou=people,dc=mydomain,dc=com"........
why is there a case change in both the dn's near "people"?? one showes "People" and the other shows "people"......how do v solve this error.....

kindly reply soon.,..........

Lowercasing of DNs is a feature which origin comes from deep internals of the application. Most attributes are case-insensitive and therefore it should not be a problem.

Is 'ou' attribute case-sensitive on your server?

not exactly.....actually we use the "entrydn" attribute for some authentication purpose and this attribute stores everything in small case,whereas the original value of "ou" is "People". hence we were facing a problem. but i guess......making our server as case-insesitive would solve the problem right???

but in case our server is case-sensitive.....then.the original value would be "ou=People" whereas the "entrydn" attribute would store it as "ou=people" ......in that case what should be done??? i guess we cant use "toLowercase" coz the locale problem comes up then........
