Summary0016959: Missing openldap-servers rpm in 8.1

CentOS 8.0 includes an openldap-servers rpm as:

In CentOS 8.1, there seems to be no openldap-servers package.
I rebuilt the 8.1 source rpm openldap-2.4.46-10.el8.src.rpm locally, and an openldap-servers-2.4.46-10.el8.x86_64.rpm
was generated. So I don't see why it is apparently missing from CentOS 8.1.

Steps To ReproduceInstall a CentOS 8.0 system
dnf install openldap-servers
Try to update to CentOS 8.1.
Additional InformationMaybe mirrors a problem in RHEL?

Since it just involves rebuilding a src rpm, I don't see why it could not be fixed independently from RHEL.
TagsNo tags attached.

This does indeed match RHEL. If something changes upstream, we will match that.

Still an issue in CentOS 8.2, it's a dependency for many other packages which means moving to CentOS 8.x is not yet possible.

Symas has build an RPM and created an OpenLDAP server repo:

Just pointing out that AlmaLinux has openldap-servers in their 8.3 PowerTools repo. Seems strange considering that they're also claiming 1:1 compatibility with RHEL.

It looks as if AlmaLinux is not matching RHEL. As noted in the solution article referenced by @bstinson, openldap-servers has been deprecated in RHEL. The last package in RHEL8 was 2.4.46-9.el8.

Note that this is one of those packages that are built but are not released upstream. CentOS matches RHEL in that sense. You can see that it was indeed built: .
