Overview#

EDirectory 8.8.8.4 (20805.07) is the 4th Patch for EDirectory 8.8 SP8 Patch 4 or 20805.07

Troubleshooting#

We had several issues in our upgrading from EDirectory 8.8.7.6 (20707.00) to EDirectory 8.8.8.0 (20801.46) and EDirectory 8.8.8.4 (20805.07).

GUID Search Crash Bug 846920#

When we tried to go from EDirectory 8.8.7.6 (20707.00) to EDirectory 8.8.8.4 (20805.07) we had issues with Bug 846920 that caused the ndsd crash but because this is eDirectory base code (v20801.46) and not SP1 (v20802.09). Since we wrongly assumed that as it was fixed in 8.8 SP7 Patch 5, we wrongly assumed it should also be fixed in 8.8 SP8.

DirXML Engine JVM Changes#

EDirectory 8.8.8.4 (20805.07) upgrades the DirXML Engine JVM from 1.6 to 1.7. As the DirXML Engine JVM is the same as the EDirectory JVM, we had issues with the Drivers and DirXML Remote Loader.

The documenation for DirXML 4.0.2.7 implies that the DirXML Engine JVM is upgraded to 1.7, when you look at the documentation for DirXML 4.0.2.2, it was an optional upgrade. We do not know when or if there was ever a forced update to DirXML Engine JVM to 1.7 for DirXML, but EDirectory 8.8.8.4 (20805.07) is a forced upgrade.
