Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 804006
Changing language to tr_TR nss fails to find ldap-server
Last modified: 2013-11-07 04:32:29 EST
Description of problem:
If user have uri entry wih upper case "URI" in /etc/ldap.conf
changing language to tr_TR will cause nss unable to find ldap-server
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter ldap server to ldap.conf as : URI ldaps://ldapserver:636
3. id available_user # you will get no such user in turkish
If user changes LANG variable he/she fail to reach ldapserver
Problem is that lowercase of URI is "urı" not "uri" in turkish, and _nss_ldap_readconfig() function uses strcasecmp() function from util.c
either strcasecmp() must be corrected or _nss_ldap_readconfig() should check both URI and uri instead of changing cases.
Right, the problem is that in Turkish the lowercased capital I is not "i" so the config parser breaks..
