Comment 7 Martin Kosek 2014-08-15 09:21:12 UTC
Thanks. This looks as intermittent errors, I could not reproduce them on my set up. I suspect that this may also be an Directory Server issue. Is there anything interesting /var/log/dirsrv/.../errors log?

Comment 8 Varun Mylaraiah 2014-08-17 17:52:25 UTC
I did not see anything interesting in /var/log/dirsrv/.../errors log. Also I have reproduced this bug on multiple machines.I have pasted the details of one of my machines in Comment 9 for your reference.
let me know if you need any further information.

Comment 10 Martin Kosek 2014-08-18 15:47:03 UTC
I see DS crashed, this is why it was not responding:

# grep ns-slapd /var/log/messages
Aug 18 01:07:46 server66ad ns-slapd: Failed to rename errors log file, Netscape Portable Runtime error -5950 (File not found.). Exiting...
Aug 18 04:32:54 server66ad kernel: ns-slapd[21240]: segfault at 0 ip 00007ffddd190ab2 sp 00007ffdba3e15c8 error 4 in libback-ldbm.so[7ffddd15d000+9b000]

I see it also was not able to touch it's log files, did you manipulate with them or the directory they are stored in? It may be related to the crash.

Could you please enable the VM to generate the core for DS so that we can report proper bug to 389-ds-base component? See HOWTO below:

I have reproduced the crash and attached the stacktrace.

Comment 12 Martin Kosek 2014-08-20 10:58:48 UTC
Cool! Re-assigning to DS team so that they can fix the crash. Once that is fixed, Web UI should run smoothly again.

Comment 13 Varun Mylaraiah 2014-08-20 12:20:11 UTC
Thank you Martin.

Comment 15 Ludwig 2014-08-21 12:45:44 UTC
The search filter is (&(objectClass=posixaccount)(!(memberOf=cn=group1,cn=groups,cn=accounts,dc=testrelm,dc=com)))"

and the crash is in idl_is_allids() called with a NULL list. 

Looks like this was fixed as a side effect of ticket #47313 (bz1044133), which was not backported to 1.2.11

Comment 16 Ludwig 2014-08-21 16:07:38 UTC
The code was introduce to by another backport for a VLV fix, but the check in idl_is_allids is missing

Comment 17 Sankar Ramalingam 2014-08-21 17:28:39 UTC
Request Varun to mark qe_test_coverage+ flag if its automated in IPA.

git patch file (389-ds-base-1.2.11) -- backporting just the NULL idl checking in idl_common.c from the commit a71633d56951dd6c4d0368c790b85628f1598968

Comment 21 Noriko Hosoi 2014-08-21 20:17:50 UTC
The search filter:

Entries that satisfy "objectClass=posixaccount" need to exist, while
entries that satisfy "memberOf=cn=group1,cn=groups,cn=accounts,dc=testrelm,dc=com" should not exist.

If the search does not crash the server, the fix is verified.

Comment 22 Noriko Hosoi 2014-08-21 23:05:22 UTC
Thanks to Nathan for reviewing the patch.

Pusehd to 389-ds-base-1.2.11:

Comment 24 Varun Mylaraiah 2014-08-22 09:41:03 UTC
I have upgraded my setup to latest 389-ds-base-
And I tested manually by adding 10 users,100 users and more than 10 netgroups in IPA-WebUI, no crash observed. Hence marking bug as verified.

tested ipa-server version :: ipa-server-3.0.0-42.el6.x86_64
