Description Christof Kaelin 2008-03-17 07:29:30 EDT
Description of problem:
Since hal update 0.5.10-1 I get the following messages (about 100 times) on
starting udev service fc8 on all my machines. I suspect hal, because udev has
not been updated since 21st Jan.

udevd[54]: nss_ldap: could not search LDAP server - Server is unavailable
and then 6 times:
vol_id[762]: nss_ldap: could not search LDAP server - Server is unavailable

My machine has nss_ldap, authentication and automount enabled (although i don't
think it has to do with automount). This error does not make any sense, as there
is no network available when udev ist starting.

hal 0.5.10-1.fc8.2

How reproducible:
Boot into Runlevel 1,2,3,4,5 with nss_ldap and ldapauth enabled.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable ldap-authentication with system-config-authentication
2. (Enable automount through ldap)
3. Reboot and watch messages upon udev start (1st service after initrd-loading)
Actual results:
many useless error messages.

Expected results:
just start udev without trying to reach the network for ldap access, which is
not possible, as the network is not started yet.

Additional info: Also when the system is up (init 5), nss_ldap (via dbus) is
cluttering my /var/log/messages with these messages nonstop (network stopped).
It's becoming a very annoying bug.
Comment 2 Christof Kaelin 2008-03-17 16:36:30 EDT
It has been solved for me on all machines by "system-config-authentication"
(disable and enable again NSS lookups via ldap).

Never seen this messages again since F9 (I suppose) => closing this one
