Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Release Notes

Null attribute LDAP search returns an error when Access Manager points to Directory Proxy (6357975)

If you are using Sun Java System Directory Proxy Server, a null attribute LDAP search returns an error. For example:

# ldapsearch -b base-dn uid=user ""

If Access Manager points directly to the LDAP director server, the same search is successful.

Workaround: If you are using Directory Proxy Server, either enable null attribute searches or supply an attribute name for the search.
