Description Marcin Mikołajczak 2004-07-15 05:07:08 UTC
Every Samba component that uses a passdb backend seems to cause a SIGSEGV at 
first attemp to access the passdb (no matter what backend is actually used). 
User management utilities such as pdbedit and smbpasswd give this stack trace 
immediately after being run:

(gdb) run
Starting program: /usr/local/bin/pdbedit -L

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x0806afb1 in make_pdb_context_list ()
(gdb) bt
#0  0x0806afb1 in make_pdb_context_list ()
#1  0x0806b1ce in pdb_get_static_context ()
#2  0x0806b79f in initialize_password_db ()
#3  0x0805bb88 in main ()
#4  0x40085bb4 in __libc_start_main () from /lib/libc.so.6

Smbd starts normal, but when first client connects (tried with smbclient -L 
localhost), it gives out this:

waiting for a connection

(Last minute: a stack trace in gdb shows exactly the same as for pdbedit and co.
) Using a compiled in backend module doesn't change anything. Same thing happens 
with pdb_sampasswd, pdb_tdbdam, pdb_mysql (don't have other modules compiled). 
There are no messages in any log file that could suggest the cause of this 
crash. No ohter programs behave weirdly on this machine.

Forgot about my smb.conf :-)

Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2005-02-05 07:57:46 UTC
please retest against 3.0.11 and reopen if necessary.  Also reset 
the version if you reopen the bug report.  Thanks.
Comment 3 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2005-08-24 10:17:16 UTC
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
