More Information

Issues that are fixed or features that are added in this update

This update fixes the following issues or adds the following features that were not previously documented in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

Generic LDAP connector

Issue 1
When you try to connect to a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server that has Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol/Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol enabled, the connection fails unless mutual authentication is enabled. After this update is applied, the certificate information on the connectivity page is used only when mutual authentication is enabled. If the server uses SSL/TLS, the certificate that is presented is visible on the global page.

Issue 2
A DN-rename operation fails for some LDAP directories during a delta import if the connected system returns more results than the configured page size on the connector can hold.
Issue 3
When a change in an attribute value involves only a change in letter case (uppercase to lowercase or vice-versa), the change fails for some LDAP directories. For example, if the attribute value is changed from “contoso” to “Contoso,” the change fails for some LDAP directories.
Feature 1
Added support for the following additional LDAP directories, including delta import support:
  • Open DS
  • Open DJ
  • Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS)
  • Active Directory Global Catalog (AD GC)

Added support for the following additional LDAP directory:
  • Apache Directory Server
Note This new support does not include delta import. This is because the directory does not have a persistent delta change log.
