Updated nfs-utils-lib packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The nfs-utils-lib packages contain support libraries required by the programs in the nfs-utils packages.
- Prior to this update, the libnfsidmap library used "nobody@DEFAULTDOMAIN" when performing name lookup, but this did not match the behavior of the rpc.idmapd daemon. As a consequence, the nfsidmap utility did not properly handle situations when "nobody@DEFAULTDOMAIN" did not directly map to any user or group on the system. With this update, libnfsidmap uses the "Nobody-User" and "Nobody-Group" values in the /etc/idmapd.conf file when the default "nobody" user and group are set, and the described problem no longer occurs.
- The nss_getpwnam() function previously failed to find the intended password entry when the DNS domain name contained both upper-case and lower-case characters. This update ensures that character case is ignored when comparing domain names, and nss_getpwnam() is able to retrieve passwords as expected.
Users of nfs-utils-lib are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
