Changing mailQuota LDAP Attribute Has No Effect on User's Quota

(Doc ID 1314111.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 27, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 5.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Customer modified mailQuota value on the LDAP server but the Messaging Server still behaves as if it has not been changed, even several days after the change.

User had mailQuota attribute changed from 100M to 1000M 4 days ago.  We can see the new value in LDAP:

cn=John Doe

And the change log shows when it was done:

modifytimestamp=20110218151337Z, mailQuota=1000M

But mboxutil -l still shows the old value:

# mboxutil -l -p user/jdoe/*                                                        
msgs  Kbytes last msg         partition   quotaroot mailbox

 296  102411 2011/02/07 20:27 mail01         102400 user/jdoe/INBOX  

Even if there are attempt to send mails to this user, the quota does not get updated.


Changed mailQuota LDAP attribute from mailQuota=100M to mailQuota=1000M.
