Problem: Failed to re-index objectSid - non school


Failed to re-index objectSid in a non ucs@school environment, may happen if you add a user.

CONSTRAINT_VIOLATION: {'info': '0000202F: ../../ldb_key_value/ldb_kv_index.c:2506: Failed to re-index objectSid in CN=cscheini,CN=users,DC=cc,DC=schein,DC=ig - ../../ldb_key_value/ldb_kv_index.c:2351: unique index violation on objectSid in CN=cscheini,CN=users,DC=cc,DC=schein,DC=ig', 'desc': 'Constraint violation'}


The message indicates, that the SID, samba would like to give, is already occupied by an other userobject.
To find out, you can check the ‘Rid Set’ of the server.

ldbsearch -H /var/lib/samba/private/sam.ldb \
CN="RID Set" \
-b CN="$(ucr get hostname),OU=Domain Controllers,$(ucr get ldap/base)" \ 
rIDAllocationPool rIDNextRID

dn: CN=RID Set,CN=MASTER,OU=Domain Controllers,DC=schein,DC=ig
rIDNextRID: 1161
The attribute rIDNextRID shows the last successfully given RID.
Now you can check if this RID (should ) and the next following RID (should not ) (be)/is used.
Take the SID from an other user or extract the Domain SID part:

univention-ldapsearch -xLLL sambaDomainName=* sambaSID | sed -ne 's|sambaSID: ||p'
univention-ldapsearch -LLL sambaSID=S-1-5-21-2438365080-1175145288-4246282840-1161 dn

dn: uid=b.baumann,cn=users,dc=schein,dc=ig :heavy_check_mark:

univention-ldapsearch -LLL sambaSID=S-1-5-21-2438365080-1175145288-4246282840-1162 dn

dn: uid=l.croft,cn=users,dc=schein,dc=ig :heavy_multiplication_x:
The user l.croft already occupies the rid, which should be next in samba’s opinion. So this is the cause of the ‘“constraint violation”’ from.


Edit the ‘Rid Set’ in samba to the last successfully used RID.
ldbedit -H /var/lib/samba/private/sam.ldb CN="RID Set" -b CN="$(ucr get hostname),OU=Domain Controllers,$(ucr get ldap/base)"
