Error description

  • Notice how the first Add of mail gets replaced by the second
    Add of title.
    The expected behavior is that the second Add of
    title does not replace mail but a second mapping is
    added.

    We need to
    change the Apply button to add the new mapping without trying
    to delete it first.
    

Local fix

  • Workaround to get around this issue with OK instead of Apply.

    ****************************************************************
    If two supported LDAP attributes are created one after
    another on a LDAP repository using the administrative console,
    the first attribute is removed when the second attribute is
    added with the Apply button.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been fixed to add the second LDAP attribute
    without removing the first attribute with the Apply button.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.5.3.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
