Description Pim Zandbergen 2007-08-16 13:48:29 EDT
Description of problem:

The 32-bit version of pam_winbind.so, needed for 32-bit pam-compatible
applications does not work on a system running a 64-bit winbind daemon.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Setup a 32-bit, pam-compatible application to use pam_winbind.so on an x86_64
system. It will never successfully authenticate.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install 64-bit samba and samba-common
2. Setup winbindd to work in a 64-bit environment. Make sure wbinfo works
3. Install a 32-bit pam-aware app. I used VMware-server-1.0.3-44356.i386
4. Install 32-bit samba-common for 32-bit pam_winbind
5. Configure pam for this 32-bit app to use pam_winbind

Actual results:

Authentication fails.
Error messages in syslog

Expected results:

Authentication succeeds, where applicable
success messages in syslog

Additional info:

/etc/pam.d/vmware-authd: This works on a 32-bit machine

auth    sufficient      pam_unix.so shadow nullok
auth    sufficient      pam_winbind.so
auth    required        pam_unix_auth.so shadow nullok
account sufficient      pam_unix.so
account required        pam_unix_acct.so

Error messages in /var/log/messages:

winbindd[19368]: [2007/08/14 17:00:26, 0]
winbindd[19368]:   request_len_recv:
  Invalid request size received: 2084

Reproducing this problem through pam is complex. The same problem can be
recreated, by using the 32-bit version of wbinfo. This program needs to be
extracted from the 32-bit rpm, as installing it will not have the 64-bit version
of wbinfo overwritten. Just type "wbinfo -u" using both 32-bit and 64-bit
versions to see the difference.
