Likewise-Open RequireMembershipOf Does Not Work

Bug Description

Using Lucid-Lynx and the latest stable version of Likewise-Open I am able to install Likewise-Open and join the domain perfectly well.

However when trying restrict the groups allowed to login by amending the config file /etc/likewise-open/lsassd.reg modifying the value RequireMembershipOf I find that all users are locked out.

I've managed to resolve it by changing the DomainSeparator value from "\\" to "+" and amending the RequireMembershipOf value accordingly:

So it seems that there is a bug in using "\\" I'm guessing that it the double backslash is escaping something incorrectly.

To note in all instances of modifying the configuration file I run the command:
sudo lwregshell import /etc/likewise-open/lsassd.reg && sudo lw-refresh-configuration
to reload the configuration.

affects: ubuntu → likewise-open (Ubuntu)

Fix committed to the package in the "likewise-open-ppa". Note that the issue was in lwupgrade so this fix will only applie to upgrade from the likewise-open 4.x and likewise-open5 packages.

Nvm....Was confused with another bug.

Fix committed in the package in the likewise-open-ppa. Just uploaded so may take some time to finish building. Please let me know if this addresses the bug for you as well and I'll submit the SRU request.

Hi Gerald,

Many thanks for addressing this so quickly. I have one question. I performed a clean install of Ubuntu Lucid Lynx and the install likewise-open using apt-get. If I run apt-get update and then apt-get update likewise-open will this apply the patch or is other action required?


Just add the likewise-open-ppa to your software sources list and "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade" will handle it for you.

Thanks Gerald.
I've included this link which expands on how to add likewise-open-ppa to the sources list.

The lucid PPA seems to contain the same version as that published in the default ubuntu sources:

So how can I resolve this in the meantime until it's published somewhere?

Disregard, i added: ppa:likewise-open/ppa instead of ppa:likewise-open/likewise-open-ppa
