the following patch is correcting a special
error detected only in AIX environment with
users belonging to DCE cells.
As it was detected during debug sessions and
using special traces, in this case the initgroups()
function coming from the own libraries of AIX is
writing to some memory areas, where it shouldn't
(in our case it destroyed the magic number
of a talloc struct, triggering a coredump).
Replacing this function with the substitute,
delivered with the samba code, the smbd
The following little patch does nothing, but forces
the usage of samba's own initgroups() function,
in case the system is AIX.
I would like to ask for a review, if any of you
have some time for it.
Bill, what's you vote on this. Can you confirm broken
initgroups() behavior on AIX ?
My only objection is that it blacklists initgroups()
on all AIX servers even though the problem appears to
be with a specific environment.
I think I missed some of this. Where can I find the patch and I'd like to
know more about the version of AIX and the maintenance level.
Can I get an "oslevel -s"? And a (quick?) way to recreate the DCE cell
