APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When using KRB5LDAP with LDAP netgroups option,
    and KRB5 is_kadmind_compat option set to no
    the passwd command may core dump.
    

Local fix

  • Do not define KRB5LDAP with the 'netgroup' option; this
    is
    an invalid configuration.
    

Problem summary

  • Adding netgroup option to KRB5LDAP module in /etc/methods.cfg
    as follows, causes passwd command core dumps.
    
    KRB5LDAP:
            options = auth=KRB5,db=LDAP,netgroup
    

Problem conclusion

  • Segmentation fault is resolved by providing proper input
    values to the function.
    

Temporary fix
