[389-users] Re: how to configure cn attribute case sensitive

Thank you Mark, William  for reply , how about this user attribute : “DistinguishedName”  in our DS this is matching  the cn attributes for string values .

Should we  consider to enable “Case Exact Match “  for this last attribute and rebuild the index?

Thank you

Hi List,

I need help with the following  ldap   issue , we are running



-how to check if 389-DS  is cfg to be case sensitive?

- how  to cfg the cn attribute  which is indexed in my DS   to be case sensitive ?

Sorry, you can't (shouldn't).  "cn" is a standard attribute with a predefined syntax.  "cn" is used internally by the server for many things, and it is expected to be case insensitive.  Making it case-sensitive could break things in ways that would be very difficult to troubleshoot.  You should never attempt to modify the server's core schema.  Especially "cn" - just look at all the entries under cn=config...



Thank you
