Description Gary Molenkamp 2005-07-27 15:30:49 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040922

Description of problem:
When I use lchsh or lchfn as root on an existing user in my ldap db, I am prompted for the binddn and then the app exits.

[root@db ~]# lchsh gary
Changing shell for gary.
LDAP Bind Password:
[root@db ~]#

/etc/libuser.conf sections look like:

modules = files ldap
create_modules = ldap
# Setting these is always necessary.
#server =
server = ldap://localhost:389
basedn = dc=example,dc=com
bindtype = simple
binddn = cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com

Using other tools to verify the entry is successful:
   ldapsearch -b 'dc=example,dc=com' -x -W -D 'cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com' -H ldap:// uid=gary loginShell

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. lchsh gary

Actual Results:  App exited

Expected Results:  prompt for new shell

Seems that libuser was still trying to use TLS but not producing any error output.
Commenting out the ldap_start_tls_s call allows the expected behaviour.
Comment 2 Miloslav Trmač 2005-08-02 22:35:04 EDT
Thanks for your report.

The program dies with SIGPIPE; bash normally does not report this because
it happens often with pipelines.

This is caused by a bug in the ldap server; a workaround is to configure
your ldap server to support TLS.
