I'm currently experiencing a very weird problem. I maintain the ldap interface of a software of our company and i'm only communicating to the ldap interface of AD, Domino and so on.

Today with a Domino server i'm having a problem. Searching for users in a group i'm getting the groups users and also exactly two users looking like that:

customer000123 customer000124

where "customer" is the name of our customer and the number is a continuing number. What makes it even more weird ist, that if i do the same search again i'll get the same thing but with other two numbers for example:

customer000432 customer000433

but the numbers are always two directly consecutive numbers.

Does anyone know if any special behaviour of the domino server or any ldap feature i don't know can cause such behaviour?

Can you give us some more infos about the Domino group? Is that a normal group, contains it subgroups, or is that a Domino auto managed group? Do you know if somebody modified the names.nsf on the server with a Notes Designer client? – BastianW Aug 7 '13 at 17:46
Unfortunately i don't know that i'm absolutely not familiar with domino i'm just using the ldap interface of different systems. – Chris Aug 7 '13 at 17:48
Contact the responsible Domino Admin. There is something wrong. – leyrer Aug 7 '13 at 22:18
Dominos support for groups is really strange. – geoffc Aug 7 '13 at 22:31
