Some notes from todays work..

  • eDirectory is actually smart enough to keep track of alias objects. If you move or delete an object, the alias is updated/removed.

  • It’s not at all recommended to try major upgrades of a remote Linux machine when the network goes up, down, up, down, up, down. Bah!

  • SOAP, which is an acronym for Simple Object Access Protocol, is of course, as many other protocols which has a name with Simple, not simple at all.

  • The SOAP implementation in SugarCRM has (at least one) bug. It doesn’t send along a non-empty error field in the response to get_module_fields(). See this bug for a patch.
