Description Simon Pichugin 2016-07-26 12:32:42 UTC
Description of problem:
It is possible to delete the instance 'slapd-standalone' with remove-ds.pl tool, while specifying wrong prefix 'anyprefix-standalone'.

Version-Release number of selected component:

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install an instance with a name 'standalone'
2. Run remove-ds.pl tool to remove it, but specify a wrong prefix instead of 'slapd'
$ remove-ds.pl -i 'anyprefix-standalone'

Actual results:
Instance anyprefix-standalone removed.

Expected results:
The following errors occurred during removal:
Error: could not find directory server configuration directory 'anyprefix-standalone'.  Error: No such file or directory
Error: could not remove directory server standalone

Additional info:
/usr/sbin/remove-ds.pl contains the next line (50):
my ($slapd, $inst) = split(/-/, $instname, 2);

So it doesn't check that before '-' is 'slapd' prefix and then it just splits that part.

Hi Simon,

Since remove-ds.pl is part of 389-ds-base, updating the Product and Component...

And you are very welcome to provide a git patch since you've already figured how to fix it. ;)  I'll review it and push it for you!

Thank you!!

Build tested:

Verification steps:
1. Install an instance with a name 'standalone'
2. Run remove-ds.pl tool to remove it, but specify a wrong prefix instead of 'slapd'

$ remove-ds.pl -i 'anyprefix-standalone'

Error: Invalid instance name "anyprefix-standalone"

$ remove-ds.pl -i 'slapd-standalone'

Instance slapd-standalone removed.

Marking as verified.
