Description Tomas Mraz 2005-05-30 18:33:52 UTC
Description of problem:
Authconfig update in RHEL4 U1 always adds if the authconfig is run a
TLS_CACERTDIR directive to the /etc/openldap/ldap.conf with value
/etc/openldap/cacerts. However this directory is created only if user selects a
TLS option on the LDAP config dialog. The OpenLDAP server fails to start if the
directive is in the ldap.conf file and the directory doesn't exist.

Additional info:
This should be fixed either by openldap creating and owning this directory or by
authconfig - ensuring that it doesn't write the directive to the ldap.conf if
TLS is not on. However I think that the directory should be owned by some
package anyway so the former solution is more correct (and easier as it doesn't
require any code change - only packaging).

Avaya would like to know how we plan to fix this.  Option one seems to be the
best idea.  Please advise.
