Updated slapi-nis packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The slapi-nis packages contain the NIS server plug-in and the Schema Compatibility plug-in for use with the 389 directory server.
- 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 thus no longer causes memory leaks on the directory server.
- Due to a bug in slapi-nis plug-in behavior, modifying a directory server entry, such as disabling sudo rules, did previously not correctly add or remove the corresponding NIS map entry or compatibility entry. As a consequence, the intended changes to configuration failed to take effect. With this update, slapi-nis plug-ins notice the configuration changes as expected and update their data accordingly.
Users of slapi-nis are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
