Updated slapi-nis packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The slapi-nis package contains the NIS server plug-in and the Schema Compatibility plug-in for use with the 389 directory server.
- Due to a bug in the NIS Server plug-in, when multiple clients were connected to the server over stream sockets, some of these clients were disconnected earlier than expected. This bug has been fixed and clients are no longer disconnected too early in the described case.
- Prior to this update, the NIS Server plug-in did not release memory that was used to hold a decoded client request. Consequently, the directory server used an excessive amount of memory as it processed more requests from NIS clients. The bug has been fixed and the directory server now consumes an expected amount of memory.
Users of slapi-nis are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
