RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.
Bug 1320715 - DES to AES password conversion fails if a backend is empty

Fixed In Version: 389-ds-base-
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Password conversion from *DES* to *AES* now works properly During the upgrade from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 to 7.2, the encryption algorithm used by the *Reversible Password Plug-in* was changed from *DES* to *AES*. Directory Server automatically converted all passwords to the new algorithm upon upgrade. However, password conversion failed with an `error 32` if any defined back end was missing the top entry. Additionally, even if the conversion failed, _389-ds-base_ still disabled the *DES* plug-in, which caused existing passwords to fail to decode. This bug has been fixed, _389-ds-base_ now ignores errors when searching back ends for passwords to convert, and the *DES* plug-in is now only disabled after all passwords are successfully converted to *AES*.

Description mreynolds 2016-03-23 19:38:27 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

At server startup the server tries to convert any DES passwords to AES.  But if a defined backend does not have any entries(err=32) when this process quits and it stops trying to convert DES passwords.  It should continue to try all the backends, even if it encounters an error.
