Thank you for the suggestion.  I believe the issue was not related to str2entry_dupcheck.  The issue lies in the duplicate DNs that the import encounters causing RHDS 10 to stop the import process.  Removing one of the duplicate entries resolved the issue.

I am testing Red Hat Directory Server 10. I tried importing userRoot database into RHDS 10. During import, the process (str2entry_dupcheck) complained of a duplicate value and then stopped the import process and cleared out the userRoot director in /var/lib/dirsrv/slapd-users/db.

Is there a workaround to get past this? Can I config the dse.ldif file to ignore this situation?

Hitting Google yielded a similar scenario...

But that was closed several years ago.

It looks like not all error conditions are being reported in the
str2entry_dupcheck code. I've opened an issue for this:

For now, you can run the import with log trace (-d 1) - it will be
"slow" but it will show you the error conditions and failing entry that
is the problem in your ldif.

I hope that helps,
