Subject [jira] Updated: (DIRSERVER-888) Add a verification before deleting an Object Class in the schema
Date Tue, 01 Jun 2010 23:49:38 GMT


Emmanuel Lecharny updated DIRSERVER-888:

    Fix Version/s: 2.5.0
                       (was: 2.0.0-RC1)

Thinking about this, I see no reason why we should integrate it into 2.0-RC1. 

As the OC index references all the entries using a specific OC, it should be easy to know
if it's used at all or not, no need to use extra storage for that. 

Now, as it's up to the admin to manage its database, I would rather not pollute the server
with such checks in 2.0.

> While I was playing a little with the new dynamic schema in ADS 1.5, I found an interesting
> Here's the scenario:
> I created a new AT called 'MyAT' and a new OC called 'MyOC' which has 'MyAT' in its May
> After a refresh of the Connection in LDAP Studio, I was able to create a new entry using
'MyOC' as OC. This entry was 'MyAT=test, dc=example, dc=com'.
> Then I was wondering how would react the server if I delete 'MyAT' from the schema.
> I got a warning telling me that an entity was depending on it (it was 'MyOC' of course).
> Very Great! :)
> Then I tried to delete 'MyOC'... and then... no warning...
> I could delete it successfully.
> After that, I was also able to delete 'MyAT', since there was no more dependency on it.
> That left my server with a pretty strange situation : having an entry depending on OC
and AT that doesn't exists anymore in the schema...
> While trying to load children of 'dc=example, dc=com', I got an error : "Error while
reading entry
>   [LDAP: error code 33 - failed on search operation: OID for name 'myoc' was not found
within the OID registry]"
> I think it would be a good idea, before deleting an OC in the schema, to verify if there's
not one (or more) entry depending on that OC.
