Description Pierre Ossman 2005-06-20 17:36:34 UTC
Description of problem:
If the password in ldap.secret is terminated by a newline, this newline gets
sent to the server causing the bind to fail. Since every operation in nss_ldap
now uses the privileged bind all users are blocked from logging in.

It's fairly common that editors add a trailing newline so nss_ldap really should
handle this gracefully.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure a rootbinddn with a ldap.secret
2. Try getent passwd
Actual results:
Only local entries are shown.

Expected results:
All entries, including those on the LDAP server, are shown.

Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2005-09-09 15:01:23 UTC
This was fixed upstream in nss_ldap 235, closing because Raw Hide currently
features nss_ldap-240-2.
