Bug Description


Using RTLD_DEEPBIND in bind9 causes the FreeIPA serve install to fail.

This patch, also applied in fedora and debian, disables use of RTLD_DEEPBIND.

[Test Case]

# uvt-kvm create --memory 2048 cosmic-freeipa release=cosmic label=daily
# uvt-kvm wait cosmic-freeipa
# uvt-kvm ssh cosmic-freeipa

Inside vm:

# sudo su
# apt purge -y cloud-init
# echo "" >/etc/hostname
# sed -i 's/*cosmic.*//g' /etc/hosts
# echo "$(ip addr | grep 'state UP' -A2 | tail -n1 | awk '{print $2}' | cut -f1 -d'/')" >>/etc/hosts
# apt update
# apt dist-upgrade -y
# reboot
# apt install -y freeipa-server

* Default Kerberos realm: EXAMPLE.COM
* Kerberos servers:
* Administrative server:

Get machine's ip address. You'll be using the x.x.x.1 address for the DNS forwarder
# ip addr

# ipa-server-install --allow-zone-overlap

* Do you want to configure integrated DNS (BIND): YES
* Server host name:
* Please confirm the domain name:
* Please provide a realm name: EXAMPLE.COM
* Directory Manager password: (anything)
* IPA admin password: (anything)
* Do you want to configure DNS forwarders: yes
* Do you want to configure these servers as DNS forwarders?: no
* Enter an IP address for a DNS forwarder, or press Enter to skip: (x.x.x.1 address from before)
* Do you want to search for missing reverse zones?: yes

Installation should fail.

[Regression Potential]

In theory, if another library with the exact same symbol is loaded, bind9 may end up calling the wrong function. This is, however, a potential problem with any program that loads shared libraries.

When you said: "yep, that's a known issue" you referred to the non-FQDN. But the above

BTW, I'm doing the install with --setup-dns. Is that what you do as well?
At the end of the installation the nameserver (bind9-pkcs11) does not start anymore.

I mean the dns setup is known to be broken, I don't know why it gets an empty zone from ldap and reported it upstream but the next step would be to debug with gdb and I didn't get anywhere with it yet..

I discovered that if I replace /usr/sbin/named-pkcs11 with the /usr/sbin/named executable, everything seems to work fine. However, I do not know what are be the possible consequences of this change.

Maybe. Note that if you try to execute named directly (instead of named-pkcs11), it will fail since the AppArmor profile for named forbid the loading of the ldap plugin.

Is there a recommended workaround? For example, install without DNS support and use a separate bind installation?

I think the my trick (copy /usr/sbin/named into /usr/sbin/named-pkcs11) works quite well. Not sure about the differences between named and named-pkcs11, but I think it is essentially the fact that named-pkcs11 supports cryptographic devices while plain named doesn't. In order to avoid /usr/sbin/named-pkcs11 to be rewritten during an update, you may want to use dpkg-divert.

This is a recipe with all the work-arounds needed to get a freeipa server with integrated DNS going on Ubuntu bionic/18.04 LTS or later.

Without these workarounds, you will hit so many bugs the system is uninstallable as of 6/23/18.

I chose Lubuntu as a platform as I wanted an integrated browser as a way to check for good operations without the complexity of most of the networking stack in the chain.

I started with a ‘clean install’ of Lubuntu 18.04. I needed 4 CPU cores and 4GB of memory to avoid most of the race conditions that kill the installer. You can reduce these to 1 core and 2GB after installation (that’s a ‘low demand minimum’).

Where you see below, replace that with the IP address of your freeipa machine.
Where you see below, replace that with the private IP address range of the sub-domain you’ll use for the freeipa server. (If your public domain is, it’s best practice to add a subdomain for the private addresses, so to resolve them. Split-view and the like generate more problems than they solve).

You should see no error messages at any point in this process. If you do, stop to puzzle them out before moving on.

Get to a command prompt as root:

apt update
apt upgrade

apt install freeipa-server-dns python-psutil haveged

Cause /etc/hosts to look like: localhost directory1 directory1

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

Cause /etc/hostname to look like:

Remove anything in /etc/netplan unless your sure otherwise. In /etc/netplan add file:
/etc/netplan/01-networkd.yaml with the below (change addresses and domains to yours):

  version: 2
  renderer: networkd
          search: [,]
          addresses: []

These commands are needed to avoid several bugs later on:

systemctl disable systemd-resolved
systemctl disable network-manager
systemctl disable NetworkManager
mv /lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service NetworkManager.service.res
usermod bind -aG softhsm
mkdir /var/lib/softhsm/tokens
chown root:softhsm /var/lib/softhsm/tokens
chmod 0770 /var/lib/softhsm/tokens
chmod g+s /var/lib/softhsm/tokens
mv /usr/sbin/named-pkcs11 /usr/sbin/named-pkcs11-dpkg-dist
cp /usr/sbin/named /usr/sbin/named-pkcs11
#The dependency on named-pkcs11 is a fedora legacy and is no longer necessary
#which is fortunate as named-pkcs11 crashes on startup leaving the system with
#no resolver.

Make /etc/resolv.conf:

search <your local domain here, in my case>

patch freeipa’s installer to avoid race conditions that otherwise would crash it:

Great! Thank you for the report.

I'm not sure this bug was ever clear on exactly what the problem was with bind9, in terms of bind9. And if it is now fixed, I don't know when it was fixed. So I'll mark the bind9 task Incomplete for now. If someone wants to describe the bind9 bug in terms of bind9 itself, and/or describe when it was fixed, we can update the status appropriately.

@ahasenack is correct.

@racb, this bug is fixed in the sense that I found the appropriate patches missing from bind9, and the staging version that @tjaalton built and uploaded stops the crashes.

This is the patch applied

I'm having a hard time reproducing the bug in bionic nowadays. It feels like a timing issue, because right after it complains about a connection refused, I can connect just fine:

  [24/28]: migrating certificate profiles to LDAP
  [error] NetworkError: cannot connect to 'https://bionic-freeipa.example.internal:8443/ca/rest/account/logout': [Errno 111] Connection refused
ipapython.admintool: ERROR cannot connect to 'https://bionic-freeipa.example.internal:8443/ca/rest/account/logout': [Errno 111] Connection refused
ipapython.admintool: ERROR The ipa-server-install command failed. See /var/log/ipaserver-install.log for more information

root@bionic-freeipa:~# telnet localhost 8443
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.

I'll keep trying, but it would help if others could also try.

Changed in bind9 (Ubuntu Bionic):
status: Fix Committed → Fix Released

The verification of the Stable Release Update for bind9 has completed successfully and the package has now been released to -updates. Subsequently, the Ubuntu Stable Release Updates Team is being unsubscribed and will not receive messages about this bug report. In the event that you encounter a regression using the package from -updates please report a new bug using ubuntu-bug and tag the bug report regression-update so we can easily find any regressions.

Hi, sorry for bumping this bug, but I'm using the latest version of bind (1:9.11.3+dfsg-1ubuntu1.3) for Bionic, which should contain the fix, but named-pkcs11 is still crashing for me.

It crashes at:
26-Dec-2018 12:11:07.639 ../../../lib/isc-pkcs11/md5.c:93: fatal error:
26-Dec-2018 12:11:07.639 RUNTIME_CHECK(pk11_get_session(ctx, OP_DIGEST, isc_boolean_true, isc_boolean_false, isc_boolean_false, ((void *)0), 0) == 0) failed

Thanks in advance.
