Bug Description: When an entry is moved on AD, and the entry is
a member of a group, the value of the member in the group is
automatically updated. But Windows Sync Control request only
returns the renamed entry; it does not return the group having
the member in it even though the value is updated. This is
because an AD group stores DNT (Distinguish Name Tag -- ID in
integer) instead of the dn itself. Since the rename operation
does not change DNT, the group entry on AD has no change, either.
On the DS side, the group entry stores the full DN which needs
to be adjusted to the renamed DN to complete the synchronization
Fix Description: Once rename operation is received from AD,
windows_update_local_entry searches groups having a member value
matches the pre-renamed dn on DS, and replaces the old dn with the
I just noticed on the wiki that it says mmr.pl is deprecated because
its "it is too buggy and has no maintainer"
I'm just curious if there is a punch list of the bugs I might be
willing to tackle them if so. Ive always found it to be a useful tool
and I prefer not to click my mouse a hundred times when a command line
script could do the job.
I'm not saying I would definitely be willing to become the maintainer
on a long term basis because I have too many project on my plate as it
is, just that I would be willing to take some time to do any updates
and bug fixes as I have time and possibly be willing to act as an
temporary maintainer for a brief period of time.
The code is fairly strait forward and at the least I could make the
option parsing a lot more robust and the error messages far more
The coding style is outdated and could use probably prototyping on the
Further more it might be useful to accept a config file and or
environment variables for some of the information for example I hate
putting passwords on the command line.
I can also see that there are a lot more options that would be nice to
be able to tune.
but if there is a bug list I would be happy to spend some time on it
and see how many I could run through in a short period of time.
A quick search of bugzilla.redhat.com didn't seam to show any thing as
far as I could tell
