The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1957
expsam MySQL inefficiencies
Last modified: 2005-08-24 10:19:53 UTC
While testing out the MySQL backend, I discovered that `smbpasswd <username>`
updates extraneous columns in the database. That's an overly expensive
operation. Changing a password should only change the password, and the fields
associates with password expiration; yet the query is updating user SID, group
SID, username, nt fullname, profile path, dir_drive and home_dir.
Is there a reason for all the other fields being updated, even though the update
applies the same data that was originally in those columns?
Fixed in current SVN.
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
