slapd ignores sizelimit values above 500 and -1 (unlimited)
If sizelimit is set to a value>=0 and<=500 the behavior is as expected,
(-1) and values>500 are ignored.
I've turned on args debugging to see if something is different between 2.4.16
and 2.3.43, which works for me.
Version 2.3.43 op->ors_slimit is set to 0 if do_search() is executed,
version 2.4.16 op->ors_slimit is set to 500 (SLAPD_DEFAULT_SIZELIMIT).
That explains the different behavior of limits_check().
With ors_slimit set to SLAPD_DEFAULT_SIZELIMIT it runs into
servers/slapd/limits.c:1294 and ors_slimit will only set to
ors_limit->lms_s_soft if the value of ors_limit->lms_s_soft is between 1 and
Your explanation is a bit unclear. Please provide an ldapsearch commandline
that demonstrates the problem with the slapd.conf you provided.
When a given sizelimit is configured on the server, what values of sizelimit
requested by the client are working correctly or incorrectly?
