Thank you.

1) Can you use following code instead of direct call of

if not api.Backend.ldap2.is_connected():

conn = api.Backend.ldap2

Why would you want to do that? The original code is fine, except the
connection check is not necessary (it is a new instance of ldap2, so
.isconnected() will always return False).

It's actually isconnected() instead of is_connected(), but even so,
proposed code doesn't work:

ipa.ipapython.install.cli.install_tool(Server): DEBUG    The
ipa-server-install command failed, exception: TypeError: 'ldap2'
is not callable
ipa.ipapython.install.cli.install_tool(Server): ERROR 'ldap2' object
is not callable

2) Patch needs rebase to master branch.

The original patch does apply cleanly to master. Did you see a
Sorry my bad.


+        user_dn = DN(('uid', "ipara"), ('ou', 'People'),
+        conn.create(
+            dn=user_dn,

can you use add entry() instead of create()? We don't use native
python-ldap, but rather ipaldap methods

It's actually calling the ldap2.create() defined in
ipaserver/plugins/ldap2.py, which calls add_entry().

NACK. We don't use ldap2.create(). Use add_entry().

So my original patch still stands.

New patch attached.

ACK, but IMO that comments is not necessary and I would like to push the
patch without it.


It is necessary if we don't want people to use it. Otherwise someone
could make the same mistake. Or better yet, just remove the method.

+        NOTE: Do not use this method.

I agree that the comment should not be in this patch - it is not
relevant to vaults.

The comment or a removal of the method(if it is really useless) should
be in a different patch. If comment is the way than please also add why
it should not be used.

The method was intended to be used with frontend objects, but they never happened in IPA, so it was left unused (instead we have no clean interface between frontend and backend and call backend-specific methods ad-hoc, what a great design /sarcasm). I personally would like to revive the concept, so I would not remove the methods. I don't think a comment is necessary either, because up until now, nobody tried to use the method.
