Description Jay Fenlason 2005-08-04 21:13:25 UTC
Description of problem: 
URI ldap:// 
BASE dc=redhat,dc=com 
TLS_CACERT /mnt/testarea/ca.crt 
Use the specified /etc/openldap/ldap.conf file and any slapd.conf file you 
want.  When you try to start slapd, it aborts with 
slapd: ../../../libraries/libldap_r/rdwr.c:93: ldap_pvt_thread_rdwr_destroy: 
Assertion `rw != ((void *)0)' failed.

initscript patch

The readability of the CACERT file can be checked in init script, in the same
way as TLS files from slapd.conf.

User will see during startup:
/mnt/testarea/ca.crt is not readable by "ldap" [WARNING]
Starting slapd: 			       [FAILED]

This should be enough for the user to trace down his/her error.

inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your

Comment 9 Jan Zeleny 2010-03-05 16:45:32 UTC
Since there will be only one more release of RHEL4 and it will be focused on performance and security, I'm closing this bug. If anyone experiences problems with this bug, I recommend switching to RHEL5, where this has already been fixed.
