I was testing stem names and found that you can have 2 stems with the same name in the same location. This is a problem for us since AD (our target) is case insensitive (i.e. OU=udem == OU=UdeM) and won’t allow the creation of the second OU. You can have multiple “OU=udem”, as long as they are in different locations (different full DN, also case-insensitive).


I can fix this by doing a StemHook and checking if the full name already exists, but was wondering if this was a normal Grouper behaviour ? Is there other directories that allows this ?
