Description Sébastien Prud'homme 2008-12-06 05:07:20 UTC
Here is a small patch to prevent an out of memory error when a idmap backend has no parameters on a DC:

Karolin, this is apparently the no memory error we had seen lately.
Comment 2 Karolin Seeger 2009-06-12 02:45:34 UTC
Okay, this patch indeed fixes the out of memory message on my box, too.

How to reproduce without the patch:
-editposix setup
-net sam provision does not work with the following Winbind config:
 idmap uid = 10000-20000
 idmap gid = 10000-20000
 idmap backend = tdb
 idmap config DOM:backend = tdb
 idmap config DOM:range = 21000-30000

Can provide a log and the full smb.conf if needed.

Simo, sorry, Günther just acked the patch.
Maybe you like to review it nonetheless.
Pushed to v3-2-test. Will be included in 3.2.12.
Closing out bug report.

Thanks for reporting and providing the patch!
