Description Dmitri Pal 2013-09-26 09:15:43 EDT
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

libiniconfig used to trim trailing whitespace of values, but recent versions stopped doing so. A config line like this:

"cache_credentials = true "

breaks sssd startup.
Comment 1 Jakub Hrozek 2013-09-27 04:54:41 EDT
To reproduce, add a line with trailing whitespace to the sssd.conf:

 "cache_credentials = true "

With the unpatched version, this breaks sssd startup, as the value is read by the sssd including the whitespace.

Verified the bug on ding-libs version : ding-libs-

Steps followed during verification:

1. Installed older version of ding-libs (ding-libs- and reproduced the bug. See the Error message of sssd service startup:

# systemctl start sssd.service
Job for sssd.service failed. See 'systemctl status sssd.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.
# systemctl status sssd.service
sssd.service - System Security Services Daemon
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/sssd.service; disabled)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Wed 2013-12-04 18:33:10 IST; 12s ago
  Process: 4927 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/sssd -D -f (code=exited, status=4)
