Description paulwbaker 2005-02-01 02:00:01 UTC
Changes made to the password authentication procedures between Samba v2.x & 
v3.x cause it not to work with HP Tru64 5.1A when running in enhanced security 
mode.  The problem occurs in samba-3.0.7/source/auth/pass_check.c (c.f. samba-
2.2.2/source/passdb/pass_check.c) when HAVE_GETPRPWNAM has been set.  The 
encrypted password (this_crypted) gets correctly re-populated.  However, the 
salt (this_salt) does not get re-populated from the encrypted password.  
Therefore, when incorrect salt is applied to the supplied password, the 
authentication fails.  In prior versions, the salt was correctly populated, 
resulting in authentication success. A configuration which exhibits this 
problem is HP Tru64 5.1A Patch Kit 6 with Samba v3.0.7  (Samba v2.2.2 works

This bug was reported on 2005-02-01.  It prevents use of samba v3.x.x with HP 
Tru64 5.1A (and almost certainly with HP Tru64 5.1B) where enhanced security 
mode is in use.  Is this bug likely to be accepted?
