Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 816148
GlusterFS should not abuse standard RPC-AUTH-flavour values
Last modified: 2015-12-01 11:45:32 EST
Description of problem:
The GlusterFS 330 protocol uses value 6 as AUTH-flavor. This value is officially assigned to RPCSEC_GSS (RFC 5531, page 61).
This is a huge issue for any tools decoding the AUTH-flavor. When GlusterFS uses the AUTH-flavor 6, tools will try to decode this as RPCSEC_GSS. The decoded data will not make sense, but most importantly, any follow-up decoding will fail as a result.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Any filesystem operations that require the RPC-AUTH-header.
Some background information was sent to the gluster-devel mailinglist earlier:
CHANGE: http://review.gluster.com/3230 (RPC: change the AUTH_GLUSTERFS_v2 value to private range) merged in master by Anand Avati (email@example.com)
Verified with 3.3.0qa45
