When using the 6.3 DSCC to edit/delete an entry you might find that the DSCC has issues with editing an entry or suffix that contains localized characters within its DN string.

Attempts to delete the LDAP entry appeared to partially fail, when attempting to delete the suffix from the web console, it is supposed to remove the entries from below the suffix being deleted, this appears to have failed. This is most likely due to "Bug 12233157 - SUNBT6683870 DSCC WEBCONSOLE CORRUPTS ATTRIBUTE WITH BINARY SYNTAX."

This is fixed in the 6.3.1 DSEE release.  It is possible to run the 6.3.1 DSCC (and the DSCC registry) while managing DS instances at their current 6.3 release level if necessary.

Depending on the system viewing the entry it is displaying a variation of an A character with symbolic notiation or an  ñ character.

When attempting to delete the entry from the DSCC web console it appears to work but the entry is still present when attempting searching from the command line with ldapsearch.  The goal is to remove that entry.


Application and workstation upgrades have taken place in the environment. There were changes in the variations of the Spanish locale being used on desktop, workstation, and application services accessing the directory over time.
