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

An attribute in the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) schema that is defined as ‘NumericString’ - 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.36 is defined incorrectly as an integer in the connector. These attributes are now defined as strings instead.

Issue 2

Delta import on Open LDAP is not processing object moves between organizational units (OUs) and containers correctly.
 

Features that are added

Feature 1

You can now authenticate on an LDAP server by using only a certificate. A username and password are not required.

Feature 2

If the Generic LDAP connector cannot automatically detect the correct way to do a delta import, a drop-down menu is now available that includes the supported options, and the administrator can select the correct option.

Feature 3

This hotfix adds support for the RadiantOne Virtual Directory Server (VDS) version 7.1.1. This version or a later version must be used for the connector to function correctly.
