Right. It would be safer thing to do, if you modified the Schema
Compatibility config. At least to make sure it re-creates the entries from

Also I've used ldap modify to remove the 'uniqueMember' object class from
the compat schema and added the 'sn=%{sn}' attribute and I still am having
no luck. I get the same 'identity source may be malfunctioning error' from

The key here is to see the Directory Server access log, to see what kind of
LDAP searches is vSphere doing and then seeing the actual entries in FreeIPA
with ldapsearch (or any GUI, I use Apache Directory Studio). With this
knowledge, you should just need to update either the Schema Compatibility
plugin configuration or vSphere configuration.
Note also that in 4.1 we have ACIs that only give access to certain
attributes within compat tree and not all of them. Adding a new
attribute requires to add an ACI to allow serving it.

If this is an issue, you'd see the difference when accessing as
cn=Directory Manager or as any other authenticated bind.

Very good point Alexander! I unfortunately did my tests either as admin or DM. I updated the HOWTO with the new step that fixed it for me.
