Enhancement Advisory openldap bug fix and enhancement update

Advisory: RHEA-2011:1345-1
Type: Product Enhancement Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-09-29
Last updated on: 2011-09-29
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Details

Updated openldap packages that fix several bugs and add an enhancement are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

OpenLDAP is an open source suite of LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol)
applications and development tools. The openldap packages contain configuration
files, libraries, and documentation for OpenLDAP.

These updated openldap packages provide fixes for the following bugs:

* Prior to this update, some parts of OpenLDAP were impossible to debug due to
incomplete debug data. The problem was caused by stripping debug data of some
modules at an early stage of the package build process. This update disables the
stripping and the openldap-debuginfo package is generated correctly. (BZ#734144)

* The openldap package compilation log contained information about breaking
strict-aliasing rules. The presence of these warnings may have led into
unexpected runtime behavior. The "-fno-strict-aliasing" option is now passed to
a compiler to avoid optimizations that can produce invalid code. The change
might contribute to stability and reliability of OpenLDAP. (BZ#734145)

In addition, these updated openldap packages provide the following enhancement:

* In a distributed environment, a Root DN (distinguished name) can be specified
instead of a hostname to connect to an OpenLDAP server. The Root DN is used to
look up the corresponding hosts using the DNS SRV (Domain Name Server Service)
records. Prior to this update, the priority and weight of individual SRV records
were ignored and the connection was created to the host in the first SRV record
returned by the DNS server. As a consequence, a server in a different geographic
location may have been queried, leading to high response times. Servers are now
queried according to their priority and weight, which conforms to the RFC 2782
standard. (BZ#733659)

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated openldap packages, which resolve
these bugs and add this enhancement.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
