I'm getting this error from ApacheDS (2.0.0-M21):

ERR_04447_CANNOT_NORMALIZE_VALUE Cannot normalize the wrapped value ERR_04473_NOT_VALID_VALUE Not a valid value 'gu\C3\AApes' for the AttributeType 'attributetype ( NAME 'memberUid'

when trying to "ldapadd" an LDIF entry like:

# Admins, Groups, example.com
dn: cn=Admins,ou=Groups,dc=example,dc=com
objectClass: posixGroup
cn: Admins
gidNumber: 10002
description: Group account
memberUid: john
memberUid: gu\C3\AApes

The user imported fine (see below).

I guess the problem is that "memberUid" must be ascii "String(IA5)" while "uid" is allowed to be Unicode. It seems MS Active Directory's schema is the same:

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms677101(v=vs.85).aspx https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms680508(v=vs.85).aspx

Why wouldn't "memberUid" be the same type as "uid"?
