#7838 configure_openldap_conf() does not handle multi-value URI
Opened 3 years ago by cheimes. Modified 3 years ago


The URI stanza supports multiple hosts. configure_openldap_conf() does not handle an existing /etc/openldap/ldap.conf with two URI stanzes correctly. It adds a second URI line to the config file.

Steps to Reproduce

See https://github.com/freeipa/freeipa/pull/2756 for a reproducer

Actual behavior

/etc/openldap/ldap.conf has two URI lines

Expected behavior

/etc/openldap/ldap.conf should only have one URI


FreeIPA 4.7.3

The bug is in parseLine method https://github.com/freeipa/freeipa/blob/b431e9b684df11c811892bd9d2a5711355f0076e/ipaclient/install/ipachangeconf.py#L205-L230. Because the assignment empty space is handled before assignment value tab, it parses the line URI\tldap://ldap.example.com ldap://ldap-master.example.com:666 as option URI\tldap://ldap.example.com with value ldap://ldap-master.example.com:666. The method should use whatever assignment value comes first and produces the shortest option key.
