Description Stephane D'Alu 2012-01-03 19:10:09 UTC
when using nss_ldap with nsswitch.conf boot process get stuck when starting named. The name service trying to resolve "bind" user through "ldap" database despite a success in the "files" database

configuration used for nsswitch.conf is 
group: files [success=return] ldap
passwd: files [success=return] ldap

Was working fine in 9.0-RC3


in nss_ldap.conf:
nss_initgroups_ignoreusers root,ldap,bind
How-To-Repeat: install nss_ldap and configure nsswitch.conf to
group: files [success=return] ldap
passwd: files [success=return] ldap

try to start named

This isuue is like thousand years old. And it concerns every available 
backend, not just ldap. The same thing is with nss_winbind, for example. 
Furthermore, [success=return] is the default status/action pair. Plus, 
first I saw this issue on like 7.x. So I can say - 7.x and 8.x are 
affected too.

And I can say, this leads up to even more weird situation. Imagine 
OpenLDAP server running on a FreeBSD. After successful test we configure 
the same FreeBSD as LDAP client - from now on slapd will stuck on start, 
as it waits for itself.
