As far as replication goes - you will need to use a security layer
(SSL, TLS, or GSSAPI) to protect the clear text password on the wire
As far as encrypting it in the changelog - not sure

Description of problem:
When a userPassword is changed in a server with changelog, the hashed password
is logged and also a cleartext pseudo-attribute version. It looks like this:
This unhashed version is used in winsync where the cleartext version of the
password must be written to the AD.
Now if the DS is involved in replication with another DS, the change will be
replayed exactly as it is logged to the other DS replicas, including the
cleartext pseudo-attribute password.
What platform? What version of 389-ds-base are you

I got 389 running on a remote linux box,and I would like to get use of
the Console without the need of exporting the X-Windows whenever I want
to make a change as I also would prefer not to keep tweaking the
configuration files all the time.
is there anyway of doing this through any remote client?
Any advise on this matter?
Thanks very much
We need to implement password expiration because of some policy. The
problem is users are not able to bind to ldap anymore, after I switch on
password expiration for our ou=People subtree . The ldap command line
tools and 389-console both just hang forever when trying to connect.
This happens even when the user changes the password right before
switching on the password expiration so the password cannot be expired
yet. When I use the wrong password, then I get "ldap_bind: Invalid
credentials (49)", but when I use the correct password, then it's just a
hang. If I switch off password expiration then everything returns to
normal again. I've followed the guide at
I've tried both 389ds 126.96.36.199 on CentOS 6 and 389ds 188.8.131.52 on Fedora
20 with the same results.
Is password expiration working in 389ds at all?
Thanks in advance,
Need to configure sasl mecanism so that i can use DIGEST-MD5 mechanism with
my autofs configuration. With PLAIN it is working fine but need to use
DIGEST-MD5. Where i can specify.
[root@ibm001 ~]# cat /etc/autofs_ldap_auth.conf
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
This files contains a single entry with multiple attributes tied to it.
See autofs_ldap_auth.conf(5) for more information.

I'm planing to migrate some of my servers to 1.3 branch and I don't know what packages to use.
I've found packages from mreynolds: http://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/mreynolds/389-ds-base/
and dfas: http://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/dfas/389-ds-dfas/
first one seems to be a nightly and I would like to mantain an stable install. should I use dfas?
by the way, is the policy-packages situation going to be solved anytime? I found very confusing having to deal with several repos to get a full installation of 389 DS, and I though this spliting thing was temporary just for EL6.
thanks for your time,
We have a master - master replication agreement. When we initialize the replication it works perfectly we can see changes to a test user we have set up go up and down from the two servers. However at some point the replication stops and we cannot get replication to start once again. The only way we can get replication to start once again is to recreate the replication agreement and then it fails again. Can anyone please point us in a direction. I am relatively new to 389 so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Using two fully updated FreeIPA F20 masters with freeipa-
server-3.3.5-1.fc20.x86_64 and 389-ds-base-184.108.40.206-1.fc20.x86_64, I've
noticed that I'm getting a lot of the following errors in the 389 DS error
log, especially at server startup.
"No original_tombstone for changenumber=511851,cn=changelog!!"
Most often, the same changenumber repeats over and over, but there are some
other changenumbers listed as well. The changenumbers are different on each
My concern is I'm preparing my thought process about the upcoming upgrade from
F20 to F21 and it looks like I may need to create a new FreeIPA master and
"migrate" the Dogtag stuff, etc. rather than a simple "yum upgrade" on each
What is the proper way to correct for these apparent errors and get these
masters working with each other in a clean manner?

The documentation for register-ds-admin.pl says the following:
"The register-ds-admin.pl script does not support external LDAP URLs, so
the Directory Server instance must be registered against a local Admin
Would there be any issues in creating the ldap entries that this script
creates in a remote configuration directory instead of a local one?

We are using 389 DS as authentication source for a web portal. Their is
about 45 millions entries. The user data is distributed accros the
Directory Server (just cn, sn and password are valued) and an Oracle
Database (All identification and business related data). The challenge here
is to keep consistent accros those two systems (a user having an entry in
the database should have one in the Directory Server). This especially
requires being able to perform a point-in-time restore of the Directory
Server (No problem with the Oracle Database, we able to do that).
Our environment is made of two Directory Servers in a multi-master
I came up with waht I think can be a solution but something is telling me
their should be a better way to do that. So here am to ask for advices from
yours experts :
Here what I think be a solution but not confident about that:
-The backup files and changelog db are store in a share storage monted on
the Directory Server
-Every week, take a (full) backup of the server (using db2bak)
-Whenever their is a issues:
-Make a point-in-time recovery of my database
-Create a script that dump the changelog db to an ldif file (using
-Parse the ldif to obtain a compliant ldif file
-Truncate the ldif file to juste keep the changes to be restored
-Restore the two Directory Server using their corresponding (full)
backups (the weekly ones)
-Replay the ldif computed from the changelog db using ldapmodify
This seems daunting, cumbersome... So any advices ?
Thank you in advance for your responses.
