More Information

Issues that are fixed

This hotfix rollup fixes the following issues that were not previously documented in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

Issue 1
You rename a distinguished name (DN) and then export it. When you import the object, two entries are displayed with different case styles (lowercase and mixed case) during the "confirming import" process. 

Issue 2
During a delta import, no entries are present if the partition name contains white-space characters.

Issue 3
If a value in an attribute is the same as the name of another attribute, you receive the following error message:

Attempted to add a second value to single-valued attribute.

Issue 4
A delta import does not correctly parse base64-encoded characters if it contains a double colon (::).

Issue 5
A change in case does not work for values in a multivalued attribute.

Issue 6
A change in case does not work if a multivalued attribute is used to create the relative distinguished name (also known as RDN) attribute.

Issue 7
If the attribute that makes up the relative distinguished name isn't changed at the same time that you rename the DN, you receive an MA-extension error.

Issue 8
If an attribute has a long value during delta import, the whole value isn't read.

Features that are added

Feature 1
If a directory does not support pagination but can return all objects in one stream, the Connector can now paginate internally to the sync engine.

Feature 2
Delta import performance is improved when the changelog mechanism is used.
