#48183 bind on db chained to AD returns err=32
Closed: wontfix None Opened 5 years ago by rmeggins.

bind is doing a search for the entry post bind, which fails because we don't enable password policy chaining by default. I think in this case, we should not look up password policy, because if the remote is AD or some other non-389 server, we can't use the password policy information. We should instead rely on the remote server to evaluate the password policy.

This code should not run if using a remote_db:

                         * There could be a race that bind_target_entry was not added 
                         * when bind_target_entry was retrieved before be_bind, but it
                         * was in be_bind.  Since be_bind returned SLAPI_BIND_SUCCESS,
                         * the entry is in the DS.  So, we need to retrieve it once more.
                        if (!bind_target_entry) {
                            bind_target_entry = get_entry(pb, slapi_sdn_get_ndn(sdn));

That is

            if (! slapi_be_is_flag_set(be, SLAPI_BE_FLAG_REMOTE_DATA)) {

I think this problem is a regression introduced by 4fc53e1 and 4f11606

The user reported that doing
ldapmodify ... <<EOF
dn: cn=config,cn=chaining database,cn=plugins,cn=config
changetype: modify
add: nsActiveChainingComponents
nsActiveChainingComponents: cn=password policy,cn=components,cn=config
was able to work around the problem. But we should not be doing the search at all for a remote db.

git patch file (adminserver master) -- a diff provided by Rich (Thank you!!)

I think I'm eligible to set "ack"? :)

And is this setting to be configured by default?

Can we have a reproducer? Is it "must" to send a bind request from a Windows machine?
