Description Igor Zhbanov 2004-09-10 17:19:49 UTC
The command "smbpasswd -x zzz" (and many others) crashes with Segmentation
fault. User zzz doesn't exist but it doesn't matter.

The configure command line is: 
/configure  --prefix=/usr --with-readline --with-smbmount --with-libsmbclient \
  --with-privatedir=/etc/samba --with-lockdir=/var/lock/samba \
  --with-piddir=/var/run --with-configdir=/etc/samba \
  --with-logfilebase=/var/log/samba --localstatedir=/var \
  --with-pam_smbpass --with-ldapsam

Here is backtrace from GDB:

The program is crashed in function append_attr() which is called with NULL
second argument (const char *new_attr).
Here is fragment from passdb/pdb_ldap.c:
----- BEGIN -----
static void append_attr(char ***attr_list, const char *new_attr)
	int i;

	for (i=0; (*attr_list)[i] != NULL; i++)

	(*attr_list) = Realloc((*attr_list), sizeof(**attr_list) * (i+2));
	SMB_ASSERT((*attr_list) != NULL);
	(*attr_list)[i] = strdup(new_attr);
/* ###################### ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ### The crash happens here ##### */
	(*attr_list)[i+1] = NULL;
----- END -----

So, the first question is: should check agains NULL be added?
Or at least should SMB_ASSERT ((*new_attr) != NULL); be added?

Now let's find out where NULL cames from.
Here is the part of ldapsam_getsampwnam() function from passdb/pdb_ldap.c:
----- BEGIN -----
static NTSTATUS ldapsam_getsampwnam(struct pdb_methods *my_methods, SAM_ACCOUNT
*user, const char *sname)
	struct ldapsam_privates *ldap_state = (struct ldapsam_privates
	LDAPMessage *result = NULL;
	LDAPMessage *entry = NULL;
	int count;
	char ** attr_list;
	int rc;
	attr_list = get_userattr_list( ldap_state->schema_ver );
----- END -----

Since second argument of append_attr() was NULL, we may see that
get_userattr_key2string(ldap_state->schema_ver,LDAP_ATTR_MOD_TIMESTAMP) == NULL.

Debugging shows that ldap_state->schema_ver is 1 (SCHEMAVER_SAMBAACCOUNT).

Now let's look at get_userattr_key2string() which is in passdb/pdb_ldap.c:
----- BEGIN -----
static const char* get_userattr_key2string( int schema_ver, int key )
	switch ( schema_ver ) {
			return get_attr_key2string( attrib_map_v22, key );
----- END -----

So, get_attr_key2string( attrib_map_v22, key )) == NULL.
Let's look at get_attr_key2string() in lib/smbldap.c:
----- BEGIN -----
 perform a simple table lookup and return the attribute name 
 const char* get_attr_key2string( ATTRIB_MAP_ENTRY table[], int key )
	int i = 0;
	while ( table[i].attrib != LDAP_ATTR_LIST_END ) {
		if ( table[i].attrib == key )
			return table[i].name;
	return NULL;
----- END -----

The attrib_map_v22[] is defined in lib/smbldap.c:
----- BEGIN -----
/* attributes used by Samba 2.2 */

ATTRIB_MAP_ENTRY attrib_map_v22[] = {
	{ LDAP_ATTR_UID,		"uid" 		},
	{ LDAP_ATTR_ACB_INFO,		"acctFlags"	},
----- END -----

The problem is that LDAP_ATTR_MOD_TIMESTAMP is not found in attrib_map_v22[]
array (it can be found in attrib_map_v30[]). The NULL is returned and it is
never checked until the crash.

I know what happen but I don't know how to fix it. :-)

1) If you need more info or have some tests to run feel free to ask.

It doesn't crashes when configured without "--with-ldapsam".
