RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Carlos O'Donell 2019-09-23 15:46:32 UTC
During an in-place upgrade the libnss_winbind and libnss_wins, known as the "winbind" and "wins" service providers for NSS, can trigger a glibc defect which causes the upgrade to fail.

If the dependency on librt and libpthread were removed from winbind and wins then it would allow in-place upgrades for systems that have /etc/nsswitch.conf with such service providers.

The glibc fix is going to take much longer (involves failures in dependencies marked NODELETE), so in the meantime any other workaround helps resolve in-place upgrade issues.

The related glibc bug:

Comment 4 Andreas Schneider 2019-09-23 15:58:10 UTC
It looks like Isaac and I have a patchset which should address the issue. Currently we are checking if the upstream CI will pass with it. We will do tests tomorrow if it works as expected.

Comment 5 Isaac Boukris 2019-09-24 10:26:44 UTC
The patchset manages to avoid linking nss_winbind module against rt and pthread, but the wins module still link against pthread and we can't avoid it there.
