Release Highlights: This release is the fourth for OpenLDAP 2.4.45. It contains an upgrade to OpenSSL 1.0.2n and Heimdal 7.5.0. It also contains several critical replication related fixes. This release is recommended for all users. Users that have configured their installation for replication are strongly advised to upgrade.

Upgrade warning: This release has the potential to change the on-disk format for LMDB/MDB databases for versions prior to 2.4.44.5.

Note: If you are setting or changing the back-mdb values multival_hi and multival_lo it will be necessary to back up any affected databases using slapcat before making the change and restoring them with slapadd after making the change. If you are not setting these values then a database reload is not needed. Please contact support for additional assistance. Back-BDB/HDB databases are unaffected.

Note: This release has the potential to change the schema requirements for slapo-ppolicy for customers using the cn=config backend if it was configured prior to the SOLD 2.4.43.1 release. If upgrading from a release prior to 2.4.43.1 and slapo-ppolicy is in use via cn=config, then it will be necessary to modify the schema for ppolicy prior to upgrading. Specifically, the following attribute definition must be added:

olcAttributeTypes: {16}( 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.8.1.30 NAME ‘pwdMaxRecordedFailure’ EQUALITY integerMatch ORDERING integerOrderingMatch SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.27 SINGLE-VALUE )
