IssueCritical Path Directory Server - ldif modification of "groupofUniqueNames" object class required in RSA ClearTrust
In the RSA ClearTrust Implementation Guide for Critical Path, the install-cp4x_ct50.ldif file modifies the "groupofUniqueNames" object class. Some clients do not wish to modify this class because they fear incompatibility problems. The RSA ClearTrust and Critical Path integration will not work if the user does not user the modification within the supplied ldif file.
CauseWhen creating an LDAP group object, certain directory vendors insist on adding a member attribute (Critical Path) while others do not enforce this (iPlanet). When creating a ClearTrust group object, a member is not required for the group to exist. Thus for successful integration between RSA ClearTrust and Critical Path, the standard object class "groupofUniqueNames" was modified to accommodate this difference in requirement.
ResolutionTo correct this issue, follow the RSA ClearTrust Implementation Guide's instructions to import the installation ldif file.
