Ref RH Buzilla #604727
httpd 2.2.3-49 appears to have introduced a LDAPChaseReferrals configuration option along with the ability to properly pass credentials when following referrals.
However, it appears that upstream went with a slightly different version of this patch using the configuration directive LDAPReferrals (in addition to LDAPReferralHopLimit).
This directive is usable in the Directory context per the Apache docs whereas the LDAPChaseReferrals is not.
This creates problems in that a) we differ from upstream and b) there is no documentation for LDAPChaseReferrals as upstream's documentation references a differently named directive with slightly different functionality.
Thanks a lot for reporting this, Ray, looks like I forgot to cross-check against the 2.3 patch. Adding the new directive so we follow 2.4 looks fine.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion
in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. Product Management has
requested further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for
potential inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux release for currently
deployed products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in
does that mean that now both directives exists, right? Just to make sure.
Karel - correct, we'll keep both.
