    *                      supported by custom LDAPs and by        *

    ****************************************************************
    VMM should support custom LDAP date formats for CUSTOM LDAP
    servers.
    Given custom property as well LDAP dateFormat should be
    specified.
    One will have to run following command in order to support
    specified dateFormat by VMM.
    $AdminTask setIdMgrCustomProperty {-id <LDAP_REPO_ID> -name
    ldapTimestampFormat  -value "yyyyMMddHHmmssZ" }
    yyyyMMddHHmmssZ >> may vary as per LDAP's dateFormat!
    

Problem conclusion

  • Note : This timestamp would be applicable for all dates in LDAP,
    VMM Will apply and try to parse all dates stored in LDAP with
    specified dateFormat.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 6.1.0.45 , 7.0.0.25 , 8.0.0.5 and 8.5.0.1.  Please
