Subject: Fedora 32 rpc.gssd misbehavior
Date: Wed, 29 Jul 2020 13:19:17 -0400
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I recently updated my test systems from EL7 to Fedora 32, and
NFSv4.0 with Kerberos has stopped working.

I mount with "klimt.ib" as before. The client workload stops
dead when the server tries to perform its first CB_RECALL.

I added some client instrumentation:

   kernel: NFSv4: Callback principal ( does not match acceptor (nfs@klimt.ib).
   kernel: NFS: NFSv4 callback contains invalid cred

I boosted gssd verbosity, and it says:

   rpc.gssd[986]: doing downcall: lifetime_rec=72226 acceptor=nfs@klimt.ib

But it knows the full hostname for the server:

   rpc.gssd[986]: Full hostname for 'klimt.ib' is ''

The acceptor appears to come from the Kerberos library. Shouldn't
it be canonicalized? If so, should the Kerberos library do it, or
should gssd? Since this behavior appeared after an upgrade, I
suspect a Kerberos library regression. But it could be config-
related, since both systems were re-imaged from the ground up.

Also noticing some other problems on the server (missing hostname
strings in debug messages, sssd_kcm infinite loops, and gssd
sending garbage to the client after the NULL request that
establishes the callback context).

But let's look at the client acceptor problem first.
