NS8 RC1 OpenLDAP Domain Validation Failed

When creating an Internal OpenLDAP Domain, the domain validation fails when the domain or sub-domain starts with one or more numbers. Validation is successful only when starting with [a-zA-Z].



From the second screenshot, I performed a search (find / -name “configure-module”) on the server and found the directory /home/openldap3/.config/actions/configure-module.

In the directory, I updated the domain name validation pattern in the file validate-input.json as follows:

Before : ^[a-zA-Z][-a-zA-Z0-9]{0,62}(\.[a-zA-Z][-a-zA-Z0-9]{0,62})+$
After : ^[a-zA-Z0-9][-a-zA-Z0-9]{0,62}(\.[a-zA-Z][-a-zA-Z0-9]{0,62})+$

After updating the pattern, the Internal OpenLDAP domain validation succeeded and the domain was created.


Hi Dominic, I’ve nothing contrary but we must check if Active Directory accepts your change proposal :wink:

I never tried, but it seems AD rules for the domain name are the same of DNS domain names, so a leading number is allowed.

I filed a card (NethServer 8 · GitHub) but I’d like to know if anybody as ever deployed an AD domain name with a leading number, like 1st-ad.example.org.

For OpenLDAP there shouldn’t be any issue, but I’d like to fix also AD…
