I am using a JDBC driver with AD. When our users are added not all
attributes that are allowed in the filters were populated.

When we later populate these attributes it almost like we need to
populate this twice for the modify to sync with Netware and AD from the
database.

Is this normal practice and anyway around this so things sync with the
first attribute change ?

It's almost like the attributes already need a value before a modify
will be recognised, but if the user add has not populated this attribute
then the first attribute modify will not be seen.

I can post logs but first wondered whether this is just something
everyone faces ?
