The ldap_dn2ad_canonical() function is supposed to map an LDAP DN into a Active Directory Canonical Name. Does anybody know why this function disallows DNs with UTF8 characters in them? The comments in the code are somewhat uncertain regarding this ;)
/* * b) does DCE/AD support UTF-8? * no clue; don't think so. */
But testing with a Windows Server showed me that is seems to be possible to have UTF characters in the Canonical name. I am asking because I'd like to commit a change that allows to have UTF8 in canonical names (by removing the check for LDAP_AVA_NONPRINTABLE from the strval2ADstr* functions.
