4.8 Role and Resource Driver -613 Syntax Error

Getting this error,

Error while resynchronizing group roles for the Identity
Identity: O=data\OU=users\CN=JDOE
Reason: novell.jclient.JCException: initVlistIterator -613 ERR_SYNTAX_VIOLATION</status>

We have already applied the recommended fix for 4.7 to set Engine Control Value 

Qualified form for DN-syntax attribute value to TRUE.
We have restarted the driver but continue to see the error. 
Does this require a restart of NDSD to take effect? 
Has anyone had similar issues or applied any hotfix/patch?
