I have upgraded our test server(from version 1.2.5, 389-ds-base-1.2.6-0.7.rc2.el5.i386 and 389-admin-1.1.11-0.5.rc1.el5.i386), and when running "setup-ds-admin.pl -u", i get many messages like this (all about custom attributes):

[22/Jun/2010:10:24:58 +0200] attr_syntax_create - Error: the EQUALITY matching rule [caseIgnoreIA5Match] is not compatible with the syntax [] for the attribute [XXXXXXXX]

Attribute is defined as this:

( NAME 'XXXX' DESC 'XXXXXXX' EQUALITY caseIgnoreIA5Match SYNTAX{1024} X-ORIGIN 'user defined' )

Although the messages, the script finishes fine:

Registering the directory server instances with the configuration directory server . . .
Beginning Admin Server reconfiguration . . .
Registering admin server with the configuration directory server . . .
Updating adm.conf with information from configuration directory server . . .
Exiting . . .
Log file is '/tmp/setupbXoREC.log'

But then I try access to the console, and click on "Directory Server", i get this error:

"Failed to install a local copy of 389-ds-1.2.3.jar or one of its supporting files. Please ensure that the appropriate console package is installed on the Administration Server. 389-ds-1.2.3.jar not found at https://XXXXXXXXXXXXXX:2000/".

Is the error about the attribute critical? Why is the client console requesting 1.2.3 version of the jars?

The 389 team is pleased to announce the availability of Release
Candidate 1 of version 1.2.6.  This release a couple of bug fixes.

***We need your help!  Please help us test this software.***  It is a
release candidate, so it may have a few glitches, but it has been tested
for regressions and for new feature bugs.  The Fedora system
strongly encourages packages to be in Testing until verified and pushed
to Stable.  If we don't get any feedback while the packages are in
Testing, the packages will remain in limbo, or get pushed to Stable.

The more testing we get, the faster we can release these packages to
Stable.  See the Release Notes for information about how to provide
testing feedback (or just send an email to

The packages that need testing are:
* 389-ds-base-1.2.6.rc1 - 389-ds-base

There are some new console/java packages too, and there is a new version
of the 389-ds "meta" package - 1.2.1
