Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.2 Administration Guide

Checking Valid Attribute Syntax

Directory Server allows you to check the integrity of your attributes whenever you perform the following operations:

The checks ensure that the attribute values conform to IETF recommendations. All nonconforming attributes are rejected and logged in the errors log. The log messages include the connection and operation ID, if applicable.

By default, the server automatically checks the syntax of the previously mentioned operations. If you want to turn syntax checking off, use the following procedure.

Note –

Syntax checking is not the same as schema checking. For information about schema checking, see Managing Schema Checking.
