Summary0001645: LDAP OU's with spaces causes problems on Win2008
Descriptionref: [^]

quote from darkfall from the same forum post:

For testing, SiT is running on Windows 2008 R2 with XAMPP installed and configured. My LDAP integration working properly, except with LDAP requests containg AD tree (OUs) with spaces. I know this is not supported by SiT, but this is a critical part for us.

i searched on, et found an "easy" solution for managing spaces.

[quote from]
When I discovered I couldn't get searches to work with complex strings (in my case searching on displayName which can have parens and slashes in it). I made this quick function to quote ldap strings in accordance with the RFC. Except I encode spaces as well since searching wouldn't work with spaces. Note, technically speaking a search filter can be encoded into the \xx format for all characters but then filters wouldn't be human readable.

I'm somewhat surprised there wasn't a built in ldap_quote() type of function already.
// see: RFC2254
function ldap_quote($str) {
return str_replace(
array( '\\', ' ', '*', '(', ')' ),
array( '\\5c', '\\20', '\\2a', '\\28', '\\29' ),

Is that possible to modify part of code to add this function and link all ldap variables through this function? i tried to integrate code by myself (, but i failed ;)

I've tested the current got branch with Windows 2008r2 and have OUs with spaces in them and don't get a problem.

This is with PHP5.3 and without this additional code, need to test 3.x against Windows2008.

Perhaps its a problem due to the underlying OS (Windows, my tests with Linux)?

Just tested sit3.x against my 2008 server and spares don't seem to be a problem my users are in:

OU=SiT Test,DC=ph-ad,DC=work,DC=EXAMPLE,DC=co,DC=uk

Can anyone else reproduce this?

I tried to configure sit3.x with our 2003r2 server with spaces in OU and CN without luck. I have SiT! running in a Linux VM with TurnKey Linux LAMP installed.

I've tested this one again and am unable to reproduce this problem with spaces in either container or CN, is any one able to provide more details steps to reproduce?
