Description Miloslav Trmač 2005-08-03 02:31:01 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #137581 +++

Description of problem:
It should be possible to issue ldap_start_tls_s() against an OpenLDAP
server that is not configured for TLS and simply have TLS not be
negotiated.  Unfortunately, this is not the case: the connection to
the LDAP server becomes unusable.   You can test this quite easily
with ldapsearch:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install openldap and make sure that the TLS lines are commented out
in /etc/openldap/slapd.conf
2. Start the ldap server
3. Run, for example, "ldapsearch -Zxh localhost objectclass=*"

Actual Results:  Instead of getting something, anything, back from the
LDAP server you get an error like this:

ldap_start_tls: Connect error
        additional info: error:14077410:SSL
routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:sslv3 alert handshake failure
ldap_bind: Can't contact LDAP server
        additional info: error:14077410:SSL
routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:sslv3 alert handshake failure

Expected Results:  An indication that TLS cannot be negotiated, and
then carry on without TLS.  The "-ZZ" option for ldapsearch requires
that TLS is negotiated.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

This works fine on FC7 (openldap-2.3.34-0.fc7).
