Description Olivier Castan 2007-10-14 16:02:00 EDT

There's an interoperability bug between dovecot and nss_ldap when doing user
lookups. It has been reported for Fedora :
Bugzilla Bug 154314: nss_ldap randomly replying with wrong user's data

This prevent building secure configurations (multiple UIDs) with authorizations
centralized in LDAP

A workaround has been implemented in Dovecot since 1.0rc23 :

The bug in nss_ldap is hopefully getting fixed in EL5.2, but yes, upgrading
dovecot would be good as well :).

Comment 5 Matt Soccio 2007-12-03 09:25:20 EST
The convert plugin included in 1.0-1.2.rc15 is severely broken.  This has been
fixed in 1.0rc23 and above.  I am facing having to convert 2k+ users from mbox
to Maildir and this plugin would save many hours of admin time and would allow
us to convert with zero downtime for users.  Please include the rc23 in the beta
channel now, and in the maint update.
