Hi Rich,

Thanks for the reply. Noting that the bug you linked to was reported
early 2006, and then was modified in 2009 (and apparently pushed to 8.2
of RHDS), is there any reason to expect that this particular issue will
be solved any time soon in 389?

389 is a fantastic product, and while we can work around the issue by
only pointing the apps that can change LDAP passwords to the server with
the sync agreement to AD, this kind of defeats the purpose of
multi-master replication for this particular setup - sync to AD is
touted as an important feature of 389 (at least, it's one of the
features that I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting and that in large part
swayed the choice to use 389), and this particular caveat is not
mentioned in any of the documentation that I've seen.

Many regards,

389 users mailing list
