Fixed In Version: pki-core-10.3.3-17.el7_3
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, entry Update Sequence Numbers (USN) were parsed as bounded integer values. This caused the server to fail to start in cases when the USN exceeded 2147483647. With this update, USNs are parsed as unbounded BigInteger values, and the server now successfully starts if USNs exceed this value.

Comment 7 Fraser Tweedale 2017-02-06 07:08:14 UTC
Steps to verify:

1. ensure DS entryUSN counter exceeds 2,147,483,647
   (consult a DS SME to see if there is a way to set this directly)

2. make a change to a lightweight authority entry.  This can be done
   via CLI or directly to an entry under ou=authorities,ou=ca,{basedn}.
   For example, you could just change the description.  This step is to make
   sure that the entryUSN exceeds 2,147,483,647

3. restart server.  Check that the server starts properly and
   that a NumberFormatException does not get logged in
   /var/log/pki/pki-tomcat/ca/debug or in
  `journalctl -u pki-tomcatd@pki-tomcat`.

Comment 8 thierry bordaz 2017-02-06 10:40:14 UTC
Related to the first step to verify.
You should be able to set starting entryUSN using nsslapd-entryusn-import-initval (see http://directory.fedoraproject.org/docs/389ds/design/entry-usn.html#import-and-replica-initialization)

Before doing an import, set this value to something like
Then import a ldif file and checks that 'entryUSN' values of the imported entries is taking into account that new starting point.
You then may be able to rapidly reach MAX_INT

Comment 9 Nikhil Dehadrai 2017-02-07 09:39:23 UTC
IPA server: 

PKI packages:

Tested the bug on the basis of following Observations:
1. Verified that when entryUSN has higher denomination (e.g: in the range of 2147485000)  within directory server, then ipa server service can be restarted successfully and it does not hang.

2. No error messages are observed for "NumberFormatException" within /var/log/pki/pki-tomcat/ca/debug or in `journalctl -u pki-tomcatd@pki-tomcat`.

Thus on the basis of above observations marking the status of bug to "VERIFIED".
