Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3940
hosts allow can't use netgroup
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
Use of netgroups in the hosts allow directive can't be used
since they aren't configured. With debug level set to 3,
the following message appears in /var/log/samba/log.smb:
[1999/07/07 15:40:08, 0] lib/access.c:string_match(95)
access: netgroup support is not configured
This is due to a failure of the configure script to search
libnsl.a for the yp_get_default_domain() function.
A workaround is to define
prior to running the configure script.
Actually, this should be classified as a more general problem as I
have the same difficulties with sshd and tcp_wrappers. Was netgroup
support not compiled in Red Hat binaries and, if so, is there an
explanation as to why not?
fixed in samba in 2.0.5-1, available RSN.
Changed to tcp_wrappers...
NETGROUP support added in tcp_wrappers-7.6-9.
