We have an issue whereby a paged-search operation causes slapd to segfault. At
this point, I can only reproduce the issue on our production data - for which I
cannot share coredumps. I am working on isolating the issue but would appreciate
any help from openLDAP developers.
The issue is triggered by the following search:
ldapsearch -H ldap://ldaphost -b 'ou=people,dc=our,dc=org' -x -E pr=126/noprompt
We have ~59k entries starting matching uid=m*; the issue occurs unpredictably in
the sense that it may or may not happen for filters matching other sets, but it
can be reproduced reliably for any given filter/page size combination. On our
setup, I could reproduce it for page-sizes 81,84,87,96,112,114,116,126.
The issue is specific to back-mdb; backtrace points to dn2id.c:
#0 0x00007f6d6a5ea6a1 in mdb_idscopes (op=0x7f695c110df0, isc=0x7f69692ca670)
#1 0x00007f6d6a5e399b in mdb_search (op=0x7f695c110df0, rs=0x7f69692dba00)
I would greatly appreciate any help you could give me with this problem.
If you backup the DB with slapcat and reload it on another server with
slapadd, can you still reproduce the fault on the copy?
