I have a consumer configured with slapo-memberof and exattrs=memberof in order
to keep track of group memberships locally as suggested in the manpages. This
works ok when adding/deleting users to groups, but when a user entry containing
"memberOf" values is modified, those values are deleted in the consumer.
According to ITS#7400, exattrs=memberOf is necessary to avoid getting this
attribute from the provider.
I see nothing in ITS#7400 that even mentions exattrs. In fact there's nothing
conclusive in ITS#7400 at all, it only says the issue should be taken up on
the -devel mailing list and needs new design work.
However, it was suggested to me to remove
"memberOf" from exattrs, which I did and now everything seems to work fine.
In any case, even if exattrs=memberof is not needed anymore, it should not have
any effect to the local slapo-memberof operations.
Sorry, that doesn't follow. Adding settings will invariably change some server
behavior. Adding a setting that you didn't need generally turns a working
config into a broken config.
