APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If a sort control is applied to a search, and the sort attribute
    is not present in any of the returned entries, no entries are
    returned.  The results being returned is being restricted to
    only return those objects that actually contain values for the
    attributes listed within the Sort List.
    
    This behavior is inconsistent with RFC 2891, which states that
    the entire filtered search result is always returned, and that
    only those entries that contain values for the attributes
    specified in the sort key list are sorted together, and the
    others are listed either before or after the sorted objects.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • APAR IO14065 in interim fix 6.2.0.3-TIV-ITDS-IF0003 (6.2.0.17)
    made performance optimizations for variable list view (VLV)
    searches. This had unintended side effects which impacted sorted
    searches as well.
    
    The code optimizations for VLV searches added in APAR IO14065
    will now be restricted only to VLV searches using a filter of
    (objectclass=*). All other searches will use the original code
    prior to APAR IO14065.
