Problem

Most of my users synchronize OK, but I get the following error in my Win2k server event log for some of my users:

...
Message : <ldap-err ldap-rc="19" ldap-rc-name="LDAP_CONSTRAINT_VIOLATION">
<client-err ldap-rc="19" ldap-rc-name="LDAP_CONSTRAINT_VIOLATION">Constraint Violation</client-err>
<server-err>00002081: AtrErr: DSID-03150A08, #1:
0: 00002081: DSID-03150A08, problem 1005 (CONSTRAINT_ATT_TYPE), data 0, Att 13 (physicalDeliveryOfficeName)
</server-err>
<server-err-ex win32-rc="8321"/>
</ldap-err>
...

Solution

Make sure you have no multiple-field entries in the location, or title, or any other field of your eDirectory user properties. If you remove these multiple fields, everything works OK.

Active Directory does not support multiple-field entries, but eDirectory does.
