Description Linda Knippers 2005-11-28 14:14:49 EST
Description of problem:
The audit record emitted from userdel when a user's mail file is removed 
incorrectly says the operation failed even when it succeeded.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
shadow-utils-4.0.3-52.RHEL4

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Make sure auditd is running
2.  Create a user account with useradd
3.  Delete the account with 'userdel -r'
  
Actual results:
type=USER_CHAUTHTOK msg=audit(1132783148.877:449): user pid=18753 uid=0 auid=501
msg='userdel: op=deleting mail file acct=ljk2 res=failed'

Expected results:
Should say "res=success"

Additional info:
A one line fix (attached) is needed in userdel.c

We need a version of shadow-utils with this fix so that HP can complete its CAPP
evaluation of RHEL4 U2.
