Description Jonathan Fischer 2005-05-20 15:38:50 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
When running 'getent group' to get a listing of groups in our LDAP server (Windows 2003 Active Directory), I get output that contains only the first group before getting an assertion in ber_sockbuf_ctrl.  This also occurs when attempting to start mailman, which is why we noticed the problem.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run 'getent group' on a computer using LDAP to look up accounts & groups in Active Directory.

Actual Results:  ... (snipped as it's irrelevant)
getent: ../../../libraries/liblber/sockbuf.c:91: ber_sockbuf_ctrl: Assertion `( (sb)->sb_opts.lbo_valid == 0x3 )' failed.

Expected Results:  A complete list of Active Directory groups, and no assertions failing.

Additional info:

I'll attach our ldap.conf file to this bug; everything else has been left at the defaults.  System is fully up-to-date as of 12:38 PM Pacific Time, May 20 2005.

Appears to be similiar to this bug:
Comment 3 Michael Jeanson 2005-06-27 11:23:25 EDT
I have the same problem on RHEL4 x86_64
The server is openldap and not active directory, the same configuration works
well on RHEL3.
Comment 4 Patrick Vachon 2005-07-22 10:59:29 EDT
I have the same problem with an OpenLDAP server in a master-slave configuration.
I've tried the following nss_ldap patches and it seems to work:

Sorry, I spoke too fast :(
Comment 6 Rituraj 2006-05-09 06:08:43 EDT
This has been a blocker for us. I have even tried latest nss_ldap and pam_ldap 
as suggested. The setting (with referrals on) works under Redhat 9 but has a 
problem with RHEL/FC4 onwards.

Comment 7 Jay Fenlason 2006-05-09 10:08:20 EDT
Have you contacted Red Hat support?  Bugs without support requests attached 
are very difficult to get added to the lists of bugs to fix in upcoming update 
Also, have you tried FC5 and/or Rawhide?  They have newer versions of OpenLDAP 
and nss_ldap in them, which may have this bug fixed already.

Please contack Red Hat support at http://redhat.com/support, which may help you
