Fixed In Version: openldap-2.4.23-29.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: TLS_CACERTDIR has a prefix which specifies used Mozilla NSS database type (like 'sql:') and TLS operation is requested. Consequence: The certificate database fails to open. Fix: Patch applied, which removes the database type prefix, when checking the existence of the directory with certificate database. Result: The certificate database is successfully opened even if the database type prefix is used.

Description Jan Vcelak 2012-09-14 10:02:38 UTC
This problem is present in RHEL-6 as well.

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

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #857373 +++

Description of problem:

MozNSS certificate database in newer SQL format cannot be used. Database prefix is recognized incorrectly.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. certutil -d sql:/tmp/certdb -N
2. certutil -d sql:/tmp/certdb -A -n ca -t TC,, -a -i /tmp/ca.pem
3. LDAPTLS_CACERTDIR=sql:/tmp/certdb ldapsearch -x -ZZ -d1
Actual results:

TLS: certdb config: configDir='sql:/tmp' tokenDescription='ldap(0)' certPrefix='certdb' keyPrefix='certdb' flags=readOnly
TLS: cannot open certdb 'sql:/tmp', error -8018:Unknown PKCS #11 error.
TLS: could not get info about the CA certificate directory sql:/tmp/certdb - error -5950:File not found.
ldap_start_tls: Connect error (-11)
        additional info: TLS error -8172:Peer's certificate issuer has been marked as not trusted by the user.

Expected results:

TLS: certdb config: configDir='sql:/tmp/certdb' tokenDescription='ldap(0)' certPrefix='' keyPrefix='' flags=readOnly
TLS: using moznss security dir sql:/tmp/certdb prefix .

Additional info:

Not a regression, this seems to be a problem since switching to MozNSS.
