Note that this issue only affects BoKS Manager running on the IBM AIX and Oracle Solaris platforms.

An issue in the latest (2.4.40) version of OpenLDAP causes connectionless ldap to fail on non-Linux platforms. BoKS uses connectionless ldap in some Active Directory (AD) related programs. The issue causes the following problems on non-Linux platforms:

  • adjoin does not work unless -K domain-controller is specified. However, "adjoin autoupdate" is executed automatically to renew the secret shared with the AD, and in that case no -K option is present, so this will fail.
  • adgroup also does not work unless -K domain-controller is given. However, adgroup is executed by adsync without the -K option, so adsync fails.
  • adgetdc does not work.

Resolution / Workaround

To resolve these issues, apply BoKS hotfix HFBM-0067, available for download from the HelpSystems Community Portal.

The hotfix includes a patched and rebuilt version of the OpenLDAP source code.
