Description Rich Megginson 2007-02-23 12:43:55 EST
If you run ds_newinst.pl with a bare minimum .inf file, you will see the
following aci created in cn=config:
aci: (targetattr="*")(version 3.0; acl "Configuration Administrator"; allow (a
 ll) userdn="ldap:///uid=,ou=Administrators, ou=TopologyManagement, o=Netscap
We should not create this aci, as we do not have a configuration DS if we are
creating a minimal fedora-ds-base.

Fix Description: Unknown to me until just now, PL_strdup(NULL) will return "" -
the empty string.  The code in config_suitespot() expects that empty or unused
fields are NULL.  The solution is to create a create_instance_strdup() wrapper
around PL_strdup() and use that in cases where the argument may be NULL.  I
checked create_instance.c.  Every other place where PL_strdup is used, the
argument is checked for NULL first.  So these are the only places affected. 
Instance creation works fine after this change and does not create the offending

minimum setup inf file

this is setup inf file used to customize the installation of DS
Comment 4 Yi Zhang 2007-11-29 19:28:20 EST
verified. PASS
Test machine: neo.dsdev.sjc.redhat.com (RHEL5 32bit)

Test steps:
1. remove all previously installed DS instance
2. do yum install a fresh copy of DS
3. use setup.ini file (see attachment) to customizer the installation
4. do db2ldap to dump all records under userRoot
5. verify there is no "ldap:///uid=," records anymore

Actual test output:
[root@neo dirsrv]# /usr/sbin/setup-ds-admin.pl -s -f ./setup.ini
