1.151.2. RHBA-2011:1007: samba3x bug fix update

Updated samba3x packages that fix multiple bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
Samba is the suite of programs by which a lot of PC-related machines share files, printers, and other information (such as lists of available files and printers).
This update fixes the following bugs:
* Prior to this update, the smbd service unexpectedly changed file permissions while renaming files, although the permissions change was not requested by the Samba client. This erroneous behavior has been fixed in this update and no longer occurs. (BZ#661311)
* When trying to access resources on Samba server with an invalid password, any further attempt to log in after the unsuccessful attempt, no matter what was the account or Samba shares, failed with the "session setup failed: NT code 0x1c010002" error message. This bug has been fixed in this update so that further attempts to log in no longer fail, as expected. (BZ#716961)
* Prior to this update, it was not possible to join a Samba machine in the Windows Server 2008 Active Directory (Active Directory Domain Services) if using credentials from a trusted domain. This bug has been fixed in this update so that it is now possible to join a Samba machine in the Windows Server 2008 Active Directory, as expected. (BZ#713552)
* When joining a Windows domain, when an attempt to list all the users with "wbinfo" and "getent" records was made, there was no output provided although it was expected. This unintended behavior has been fixed in this update so that issuing a 'getent passwd "[GROUPNAME]\[username]"' command for all valid users and groups works, as expected. (BZ#679066)
* When changing printer settings on a Windows client for printers shared via a Samba Print Server or CUPS, these settings were not saved properly. This bug has been fixed in this update so that the printer settings are now saved properly, as expected. (BZ#698400)
* When there was a large number of groups and users, if winbind attempted to continue after resolving the first 250 groups, winbind terminated unexpectedly and produced a core dump. This bug has been fixed in this update so that winbind now works as expected when resolving groups. (BZ#704279)
* The smbclient program incorrectly guessed the server principal if a user and server were not in the same Kerberos 5 (krb5) realm and the server's short name was used. As a result, connection to the server failed. This bug has been fixed in this update so that connection to the server now works as expected. (BZ#701661)
* Adding and removing printers with CUPS was not correctly handled by Samba if the "load printers = yes" option was set. Furthermore, error messages emitted by CUPS to Samba were not handled correctly. Also, trying to set the "printcap name = /etc/printcap" option in order to avoid performance penalties when using CUPS with a large number of printers and clients was not working properly. Finally, parsing a printcap file was not working as expected. The aforementioned problems have been fixed in this update and no longer occur. (BZ#701975)
* Samba was not able to receive printer's "location" attribute from CUPS. As a result, it was not possible to view printer's description while browsing printers that were available on the system. This bug has been fixed in this update so that the "location" attribute is now received properly by Samba, as expected. (BZ#702039)
* The mount.cifs(8) man page did not contain a description for the "--nounix" option. This has been fixed in this update by adding the missing description to the man page. (BZ#621686)
* Prior to this update, there were certain inconsistencies between the available options described in the wbinfo(1) man page and the output of the "wbinfo --help" command. The majority of these inconsistencies has been fixed in this update. (BZ#679086)
All users of samba3x are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
