Description Noriko Hosoi 2008-03-06 22:15:37 UTC
Description of problem:
* If fedora-ds-base is installed by root, the mode of
  /var/run/dirsrv is 0750, which prevents ordinary users to access
  the UNIX socket.  Should the mode be 0755?  Or we don't allow
  non-root/non-nobody users to use LDAPI?

    drwxr-x---  2 nobody nobody 4096 Mar  5 13:57 /var/run/dirsrv/
    It's set by makeDSDirs in DSCreate.pm.

It's about the intermediate directory's permission.  OpenLDAP just has /var and
/var/run.  ldapi is already the socket, isn't it?

We have one more level /var/run/dirsrv, which is hiding the socket from non-root
and non-nobody...  But yes, I have to install openldap and investigate more.

maybe we should move the socket into /var/run?  e.g. /var/run/slapd-instance.socket?

I think that's a good idea.  One thing I'd like to make sure is we have to worry
about RHDS/FDS coexisting with OpenLDAP server on one host?  Something like, if
port 389 is already taken, our setup-ds offers alternative.  Do we need to do
something similar for LDAPI socket?

Description: create an LDAPI UNIX socket at the parent dir of run_dir
(/var/run/dirsrv, by default).

Test result.
Installed by root and the server's owner is nobody.
# ls -l /var/run/slapd-*socket
srw-rw-rw-  1 root root 0 Mar 13 10:28 /var/run/slapd-laputa1.socket

[..] - Red Hat-Directory/8.0.0 B2008.073.1814 starting up
[..] - slapd started.  Listening on All Interfaces port 10391 for LDAP requests

[..] - Listening on /var/run/slapd-laputa1.socket for LDAPI requests

Comment 2 Rich Megginson 2008-03-13 20:46:02 UTC
Ok.  Is root:root 0666 the correct ownership and mode?  Is that what openldap uses?

Comment 3 Noriko Hosoi 2008-03-13 21:42:55 UTC
I've installed OpenLDAP 2.3.30 on RHEL4.  By default, the prefix is /usr/local.
 And the LDAPI UNIX socket is created at /usr/local/var/run with the mode 0777
owned by root (I started the server as root.  For comparison, I tried to start
the server as myself, which failed.)

[root@laputa openldap-2.3.30]# ls -l /usr/local/var/run
total 20
srwxrwxrwx  1 root root  0 Mar 13 13:29 ldapi
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 39 Mar 13 13:29 slapd.args
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  6 Mar 13 13:29 slapd.pid

fix verified:

RHEL5 - /var/run/slapd-<instance>.socket

HP-UX - /var/opt/dirsrv/slapd-<instance>/slapd-<instance>.socket

Both in parent directory to the run_dir.
