Description Ben Lentz 2004-03-17 12:07:34 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET 
CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
It would be nice if the listening interfaces for slapd could be 
specified via a config file, ala /etc/sysconfig/ldap. 
If /etc/rc.d/init.d/ldap was modified such that:

daemon ${slapd} -u ldap -h '"ldap:/// ldaps:///"' ...etc...
 was changed to
daemon ${slapd} -u ldap -h '"ldap://$BIND/ ldaps://$BIND/"' ...etc...

Then /etc/sysconfig/ldap could contain:
 by default. Then, if an admin wanted to adjust the listening 
interfaces, they would simply modify /etc/sysconfig/ldap:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. N/A

Additional info:

This may sound stupid, but I think it'd be an easy thing to do and I 
know that at least *I'd* use it!
Comment 1 Ben Lentz 2004-03-17 14:12:04 EST
I've over looked the escaping effect of the single-quotes. The line 
should read:

daemon ${slapd} -u ldap -h "\"ldap://$BIND/ ldaps://$BIND/\"" -l

Attached is how I do it -- the advantage to putting the whole URL in the variable (instead of just the 
host/IP) is that you can bind to more than one. The patch also has a fix to the grep -- the slapd.conf 
keywords are case-insensitive, so it'll fail to pick up "tls*" and start the LDAPS listener(s).

Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 17:40:30 EDT
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
Comment 5 John Thacker 2006-10-29 16:23:50 EST
Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.  Note that FC3
and FC4 are only supported by Fedora Legacy for security fixes.  If this is a
security issue, please assign to Fedora Legacy.  Otherwise, please retest with
FC5 or FC6, and if it still occurs, please reopen and assign to the correct
version.  Many changes have occurred since this bug was first filed and it may
be fixed in a more recent version.  We apologize for not fixing this bug
earlier.  Thanks!
