Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 198527
wiki lists incorrect method for changing allowed hosts/IP addresses
Last modified: 2015-12-07 11:38:07 EST
Description of problem:
While it is a known bug that the admin server software itself requires host/IP
address matching to fail before a client can be granted access:
the wiki still lists information that doesn't work on this page:
I can understand why the wiki lists information that *should* work, but we need
information that *does* work.
Perhaps the wiki should contain a link to the bug listed above, or a note
Due to a bug in the software that will be fixed in release foo, if you're using
release 1.0_blah, then you'll need to use syntax something like the following to
allow any host, anywhere, to access the admin server:
dn: your relevant dn here
replace: nsAdminAccessHosts nsAdminAccessAddresses
The matching logic is reversed, so if you want any host to connect, you need to
empty the nsAdminAccessHosts field and use something in nsAdminAccessAddresses
that will most likely never match one of your clients' IP addresses.
Thanks. Please check the wiki page to see if I worded it correctly.
Your wording is better than mine. Thanks for making the change.
