Doc Text:
The default of the "nsslapd-enable-nunc-stans" parameter has been changed to "off" Previously, the nucn-stans framework was enabled by default in Directory Server, but the framework is not stable. As a consequence, deadlocks and file descriptor leaks could occur. This update changes the default value of the "nsslapd-enable-nunc-stans" parameter to "off". As a result, Directory Server is now stable.

Description mreynolds 2018-08-09 18:28:54 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

#### Issue Description

Currently nunc-stans is not stable, and we need to turn if off by default until the FD leak and deadlock is resolved.

Comment 4 Viktor Ashirov 2018-08-12 18:12:46 UTC
Build tested: 389-ds-base-

On a fresh instance:
[root@server ds]# ldapsearch -xLLL -D cn=Directory\ Manager -w password -b cn=config -s base nsslapd-enable-nunc-stans
dn: cn=config
nsslapd-enable-nunc-stans: off

[root@server ds]# pstack $(pidof ns-slapd) | grep nunc-stans -c

Nunc-stans is disabled by default, marking as VERIFIED.
