From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020827 Description of problem: when setup for "ldap" authentication, the linux box does an ldapsearch on the whole subtree for (objectclass=posixAccount) which returns about 30,000 entries .. not good... does the same thing for group (objectclass=posixGroup). Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. setup ldap authentication server (out of the scope of this bug) 2. setup RHL Phoebe2 box to use ldap authentication server (using authconfig-gtk) 3. finger somevaliduser 4. watch ethereal output or accesslog on the ldap server Actual Results: [06/Feb/2003:13:41:27 -0700] conn=1258702 op=1 SRCH base="dc=sun,dc=com" scope=2 filter="(objectClass=posixAccount)" attrs="uid userPassword uidNumber gidNumber cn homeDirectory loginShell gecos description objectClass" --- [06/Feb/2003:12:02:35 -0700] conn=1244165 op=2 SRCH base="dc=sun,dc=com" scope=2 filter="(&(objectClass=posixGroup))" attrs="cn userPassword memberUid uniqueMember gidNumber" [06/Feb/2003:12:02:49 -0700] conn=1244222 op=1 SRCH base="dc=sun,dc=com" scope=2 filter="(&(objectClass=posixGroup))" attrs="cn userPassword memberUid uniqueMember gidNumber" [06/Feb/2003:12:02:51 -0700] conn=1244222 op=2 SRCH base="dc=sun,dc=com" scope=2 filter="(&(objectClass=posixGroup))" attrs="cn userPassword memberUid uniqueMember gidNumber" Expected Results: it should have something like uid=XXX or posixuid=XXX .. in the filter.. why does it get all entries??? are we going back to the ypcat map | grep entry type of searches???

Description : This package includes two LDAP access clients: nss_ldap and pam_ldap. Nss_ldap is a set of C library extensions that allow X.500 and LDAP directory servers to be used as a primary source of aliases, ethers, groups, hosts, networks, protocol, users, RPCs, services, and shadow passwords (instead of or in addition to using flat files or NIS). Pam_ldap is a module for Linux-PAM that supports password changes, V2 clients, Netscape's SSL, ypldapd, Netscape Directory Server password policies, access authorization, and crypted hashes.

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks. Red Hat Linux 7.3 and Red Hat Linux 9 are no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. They are maintained by the Fedora Legacy project (http://www.fedoralegacy.org/) for security updates only. If this is a security issue, please reassign to the 'Fedora Legacy' product in bugzilla. Please note that Legacy security update support for these products will stop on December 31st, 2006. If this is not a security issue, please check if this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release. If so, please change the product and version to match, and check the box indicating that the requested information has been provided. If you are currently still running Red Hat Linux 7.3 or 9, please note that Fedora Legacy security update support for these products will stop on December 31st, 2006. You are strongly advised to upgrade to a current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable. Some information on which option may be right for you is available at http://www.redhat.com/rhel/migrate/redhatlinux/. Any bug still open against Red Hat Linux 7.3 or 9 at the end of 2006 will be closed 'CANTFIX'. Again, if this bug still exists in a current release, or is a security issue, please change the product as necessary. We thank you for your help, and apologize again that we haven't handled these issues to this point.
