Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 200989
"Consumer server unreachable" message even though server is reachable
Last modified: 2015-01-04 18:20:26 EST
Description of problem:
When I create a replication agreement, I get a dialog saying:
"Consumer server unreachable or invalid credentials supplied. Unable to perform
subtree duplication verification. Do you wish to continue?"
If I continue, the replication nonetheless occurs. The error message appears
immediately, which made me suspect that the reachability test does not occur. I
attempted a packet capture with ethereal, and saw no traffic to the consumer on
port 389 or 636. I see the message even though I supply the correct credentials.
I believe it also occurs no matter what port I select.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. New replication agreement
2. select "Using encrypted SSL connection"
3. Enter bind and password info
4. click Next
Try to reproduce using ldapsearch from the command line.
./ldapsearch -h remotehost -p remoteport -Z -P
/opt/fedora-ds/alias/slapd-yourhost-cert8.db -D "repl manager DN" -w
replmanpassword -s base -b "" "objectclass=*"
SSL initialization failed: error -8174 (security library: bad database.)
Is replication working?
Yes, replication is working.
Ok. I'm trying to gauge the severity of this issue. It sounds like a low
severity i.e. it's just some random (possibly bogus) error message in the
console when setting up the replication agreement. Other than that, everything
seems to be working fine?
Yes, things seem to work fine if you ignore the message. If you don't know that
you can ignore it, it prevents you from setting up replication at all.
By the way, I see that I didn't mention that my supplier is x86_64 and my
consumer is x86. I don't know whether that's significant.
