Heads Up: If an object in the tree contains roughly ten thousand or more particular attribute values, a problem with eDirectory 8.7.3 IR6 will cause every operation that attempts to access the object to fail. The error returned is -150 (insufficient memory).

The problematic attributes are the following:

  • ACL
  • Inherited ACL
  • Facsimile Telephone Number
  • Email Address
  • Postal Address
  • Telephone Number
  • O
  • OU
  • C
  • L
  • Network Address
  • Replica
  • Transitive Vector

The problem can also occur if you have a combination of these attributes that adds up to ten thousand or more. For instance, an entry with four thousand ACLs, three thousand Network Addresses and three thousand Telephone Numbers would most likely experience the problem.

Check out this TID for all the details, including how to fix it if it happens to you.
