Re: Segfault in slapd 2.4.8 - syncrepl and glue (ITS#5430)
DG> Can anyone else reproduce this, or do we need to work on more examples?
After more experimentation, I believe this crash only happens if
replication between servers 1 and 2 (master of the main tree and
subordinate master respectively) has completed before server 3 (consumer
of 1) is started.
We've scripted a test which works for me against 2.4.8 and did work
against CVS HEAD until Howard committed
openldap-src/servers/slapd/syncrepl.c 2008-03-19 23:26:40 +0000. That
changes the syncrepl<-->glue interaction such that the data from server
2 is never replicated to server 1 (a pre-requisite for this crash).
Maybe our config wrongly depends on the old behaviour. I'll look at
Test rig (3.7K) is at
tar xzf openldap-its5430-scripted-test-2008-03-19.tar.gz
Optionally copy CVS openldap-src from before the above commit into the
directory before invoking build.sh.
Probably only works on Linux. Reproducible with bdb and hdb backends
using BDB 4.4 on Debian Lenny/i386 (bare metal). Not reproducible with
the ldif backend because replication from 2 to 1 never happens.
