Description

When Trying to create a new Rule, I have an error Can't execute LDAP request. Into the log file */var/log/rudder/webapp/2013_05_15.stderrout.log

[2013-05-15 07:35:45] ERROR com.normation.ldap.sdk.RWPooledSimpleAuthConnectionProvider - Can't execute LDAP request
com.unboundid.ldap.sdk.LDAPSearchException: no such object

[2013-05-15 07:35:45] ERROR com.normation.rudder.web.components.popup.CreateOrCloneRulePopup - An error occurred while saving the Rule:Can't execute LDAP request

Neverthless, I still can add new groups or Directives...

I can not reproduce that on other fresh installation.

So something went wrong with that installation, and actually, the LDAP DIT is broken: there is no "ou=Rules,..." object, and so Rudder can't work.
"Simply" adding back that object and its children make rudder work again.

Normally, there is a check for that, that does not work - see bug #3588)

I'm going to relaunch snapshot-2.6 CI task to see if it's reproducible, or was "just" bad luck.

The new snapshot works as expected, so it should be some cosmic ray not being nice with us.

OK, so the actual problem is that "ou=Archives" is not created, and that combined #3588 and with a bug in UnboundID that try to move object even if the destination is not present leads to the suppression of rules, and then to the errors.

So, easy workaround (and correction): add in bootstrap.ldif "ou=Archives,ou=Rudder,cn=rudder-configuration".

  • Target version changed from 2.6.1 to 2.4.6

This bug impacts 2.4 too, retargeting this issue

We also need to make a migration script to include that change.
