5.214. nss-pam-ldapd

Updated nss-pam-ldapd packages that fix a bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The nss-pam-ldapd provides the nss-pam-ldapd daemon (nslcd) which uses a directory server to look up name service information on behalf of a lightweight nsswitch module.

Bug Fix

BZ#864365
When the nslcd daemon requested access to a large group, a buffer provided by the glibc library could not contain such a group and retried again with a larger buffer to process the operation successfully. However, confusing and redundant error messages were written to the /var/log/message file. This update makes sure that even when glibc provides a buffer that is too small on first attempt in the described scenario, no redundant error messages are returned.
All users of nss-pam-ldapd are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
