Description Brad Hards 2011-01-13 19:23:09 UTC
When using ldbedit (from s4 master), if the resulting LDIF is not parsed correctly, then the rest of the records are removed.

I've reproduced this problem by inserting a "+" sign into the DN.

That results in:
Error: Unable to parse dn 'CN=work+,CN=Profiles'
# 0 adds  0 modifies  5 deletes

(where those 5 deletes are the record I'm editing, plus any following records)

It would be better if ldbedit provided the warning/error message and didn't make any changes to the database.

The error message might be slightly better if it also had a line number, but that is much less important.

The fix has made it to "master": http://gitweb.samba.org/samba.git/?p=samba.git;a=commitdiff;h=79d3532f7f905afe1a48acabf75247cef6f791e3

Hope that this is resolved.
