Description Dmitri Pal 2010-05-17 13:54:12 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #592411 +++

Description of problem:
getent returns the login shell of the users (puser1 & puser2 in this case) even though the remote LDAP server has no such entry.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Make sure there exists no "loginshell" attribute for the users on the ldap server.

2. Configure /etc/nslcd.conf:
# cat /etc/nslcd.conf
uid nslcd
gid ldap
uri ldaps://shanksldap.idm.lab.bos.redhat.com:636
base dc=example,dc=com
tls_cacertdir /etc/openldap/cacerts

3. getent -s ldap passwd. Observe that the loginshell is returned for puser1 and puser2.

Actual results:

/# /usr/bin/ldapsearch -x -h shanksldap.idm.lab.bos.redhat.com -p 389 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -w Secret123 -b "uid=puser1,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com"
# extended LDIF
# LDAPv3
# base <uid=puser1,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com> with scope subtree
# filter: (objectclass=*)
# requesting: ALL

# puser1, People, example.com
dn: uid=puser1,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
uidNumber: 1001
gidNumber: 1001
objectClass: top
objectClass: posixAccount
uid: puser1
cn: Posix User1
homeDirectory: /export/puser1

# getent -s ldap passwd 
puser1:*:1001:1001:Posix User1:/export/puser1:/bin/bash  <===========
puser2:*:1002:1002:Posix User2:/export/puser2:/bin/bash  <===========
puser3:*:999:999:Posix User3:/export/puser3:/bin/bash

Expected results:

Should not return missing attributes.
