Description Ayappan 2018-09-24 12:07:47 UTC

This had a fix for DFS issue in AIX. Sometime (or for a quiet long time) back, there is a check to determine "HAVE_BROKEN_READLINE" in the configure. Now nowhere i can this check and the code in source3/smbd/msdfs.c "#if defined (HAVE_BROKEN_READLINE)" never pass through and the DFS problem is back again in AIX.

I've confirmed. Hmmmmmm.

$ grep -r HAVE_BROKEN_READLINK samba-4.10.0
samba-4.10.0/source3/smbd/msdfs.c:#if defined(HAVE_BROKEN_READLINK)
$ /usr/local/samba-4.10.0/sbin/smbd -b |grep HAVE_BROKEN_READLINK
zsh: done       /usr/local/samba-4.10.0/sbin/smbd -b |
zsh: exit 1     grep HAVE_BROKEN_READLINK
