Is this documented in the upstream RHEL 7.4 release notes? https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/

CentOS 7.4 Release Notes https://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS7.1708 have been updated to include a link to this bug and the mailing list link.

The attached script prep-ldap.sh works for my configuration, and may be useful for others. This script should be run prior to the RHEL upgrade to 7.4.

Instead of having you tamper with the slapd config manually, this uses ldapmodify to achieve the same result.

This may be particulary useful in clustered (syncrepl) setups, in which case the modification is distributed over the cluster automatically, depending on your setup.

If you haven't alredy done so then raising a ticket on bugzilla.redhat.com about this would also be a good thing to do so that their release notes can be adjusted to document this too.

Anticipating "Shooting for 1708 release early next week" (https://twitter.com/CentOS/status/906083174123540481) I would like to know what the situation around openldap will be on release. Will openldap/ppolicy issue be in the 1708 release?


TrevorH (developer)

Unless RHEL have patched and released the fix before then (which I doubt), it'll go out exactly how it is now in CR.
