Description Jan Koop 2005-12-05 13:25:01 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:
After upgrading from openldap-2.2.23-5 to 2.2.29-1 openldap refused to start. For this particular setup, a cleartext password hash is necessary. I checked the spec file of 2.2.29, but --enable-cleartext was part of the configure line. 
This issue is known to openldap.org as bug ITS#4021 in 2.3 series. I believe a backport of a patch to the 2.2 series exists.
I was forced to downgrade to get slapd runn, upgrading our primary LDAP servers automatically would have had disastrous consequences.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure 'password-hash {CLEARTEXT}' in /etc/openldap/slapd.conf
2. restart slapd

Actual Results:  slapdtest fails
slapd does not start

Expected Results:  slapdtest OK
slapd starts

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 ?

I'm sorry nobody helped you with the bug. FC4 is not supported anymore, please
try FC-6 or F7 when it gets out and reopen the bug if the problem still persists.
