this patch fixes the problem, same as above URL

Description of problem:

The option to rpc.gssd for specifying a krb5 credential cache other than /tmp (-d) doesn't work as specified in the current RHEL5.3 rpm: nfs-utils-1.0.9-40.el5.i386.rpm

[root@tornado ~]# /usr/sbin/rpc.gssd -d /tmp
[root@tornado ~]# /usr/sbin/rpc.gssd -d /var/tmp
rpc.gssd: ccachedir path name too long

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

How reproducible:

Execute the command, specify an option to -d that's something other than /tmp.

Steps to Reproduce:
/usr/sbin/rpc.gssd -d /var/tmp
Actual results:
"rpc.gssd: ccachedir path name too long"

Expected results:
non-error, credential cache dir is set as directed

Additional info:
This is fixed in nfs-utils-1.1.2

Comment 1 Tim Czerwonka 2011-01-10 13:16:05 EST
Still a problem in nfs-utils-1.0.9-47.el5_5.2.x86_64.rpm
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-01-11 15:06:49 EST
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-01-11 18:10:55 EST
This request was erroneously denied for the current release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.  The error has been fixed and this
request has been re-proposed for the current release.
