      Description

      In Studio 1.5.3 I could specify Entry UUID Editor as the editor for the attribute called GUID in Novell eDirectory.
      The Entry Editor in Studio would then display the GUID as a nice string:
      bcdf4a91-ccb1-ae49-a18f-bcdf4a91ccb1

      In 2.0 M2 this no longer works. The entry editor displays this next to the GUID attribute:
      Invalid UUID

          Does it show the same behavior using the Apache Directory LDAP API and JNDI?

          No it doesn't, haven't tried that before.

          After switching back to JNDI it works like it did before.
          I get a nice string value like: bcdf4a91-ccb1-ae49-a18f-bcdf4a91ccb1

          Ok, thanks for the confirmation.

          This is a known issue with the Apache Directory LDAP API not handling binary attributes correctly.

          Forgot to mention, that we've almost already resolved DIRAPI-78 (Binary attributes are not correctly recognized and are retrieved with data corruption), and that we'll probably launch a new release of the API and Studio by the end of the week.

          Apologies for all these defects but Studio is a rather complex piece of software now, and shaking up things in the internals like we did for 2.0 has had unexpected consequences on some parts of the code.

          Many thanks for reporting everything you found so far.

          Reopened since DIRAPI-78 (Binary attributes are not correctly recognized and are retrieved with data corruption) has been reoponed.
