Description Michael Young 2005-05-12 08:16:32 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050509 Fedora/1.0.3-5 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
I am testing nfsv4 with sec=krb5 where the kerberos server is Active Directory. It seems that the AP-REQ ticket is too big for rpc.svcgssd process (1196 bytes I think) which reports the errors
May 10 12:57:14 xxx rpc.svcgssd[1919]: WARNING: gss_accept_sec_context failed
May 10 12:57:14 xxx rpc.svcgssd[1919]: ERROR: GSS-API: error in handle_nullreq: gss_accept_sec_context(): A token was invalid - Token header is malformed or corrupt
then crashes. If I increase the size of the token buffer (see the patch I will attach) then nfsv4 starts working, but rpc.svcgssd shouldn't crash if it gets tokens it doesn't like.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
nfs-utils-1.0.7-6

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send a big AP-REQ token to rpc.svcgssd
