I'm trying to setup samba on freebsd 12.0-RELEASE-p3 amd64 with bind_dlz backend.
I've build samba48 and bind914 with GSSAPI-heimdal from ports.

Trying to debug dns updates with samba_dnsupdate I appended a -d 9 parameter to the "dlz_bind914.so" module:
database "dlopen ...modules/bind9/dlz_bind9_14.so -d 9";
and stared named in foreground to watch the log.

But when I tried to run samba_dnsupdate, named crashed with BUS ERROR.

See attached file trace.txt from gdb debugger.

As I can see, bind crashes in dlz_bind9_14.so module when it is stared with a "-d 9" parameter.

Without such parameter (or with "-d 3") it works fine and performs updates.

Are you able to try it with
-d "9 auth_json_audit:3"
-d "9 auth_json_audit:4"

Test 1.

Tested with such parameters in /var/db/samba4/bind-dns/named.conf:

database "dlopen /usr/local/lib/shared-modules/bind9/dlz_bind9_14.so -d 9,auth_json_audit:3";

Result: samba_dnsupdate worked, named did not crash.

Test 2.


database "dlopen /usr/local/lib/shared-modules/bind9/dlz_bind9_14.so -d 9,auth_json_audit:4";

Result: samba_dnsupdate failed, named crashed with bus error.

Samba 4.8.X is not a supported release any more.

Is this defect still a valid defect with newer releases of Samba?
