Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 216668
nscd core nscd-2.3.4-2.25 x86_64
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:33 EDT
Description of problem:
NSCD service crashed while after start on 64bit x86_64 platform.
Time from start to crash nscd service is max 1 hour.
Strange messsage is after next start "nscd -d" on first debug row.
"invalid persistent database file "/var/db/nscd/passwd": verification failed"
I did try swith off option with "peristent passwd no". Withou any result on
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Openldap with 10000 users.
Samba server use ldap DB.
nscd provide passwd and group cache.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.wait a while
Servers runing on 32bit architecture with same configuration and same RHEL with
updates haven't this problem - nscd run correcly.
I will try create core dump, or sent strace output.
The "invalid daatabase" might just be a consequence of the crash. And everytime
the ldap nss module is involved chances are more than good that it is the problem.
Can you reproduce this with a better implemented NSS module? Use NIS, it's
known to work.
Also, can you reproduce it with http://people.redhat.com/jakub/glibc/2.3.4-2.29/
(didn't get through QA yet, but for testing should be usable)?
There have been multiple nscd bugfixes since RHEL4 U4.
Please retry with RHEL4.5 beta (glibc-2.3.4-2.36 or above) and reopen if the
problem still persists.
