DCE and DFS for Red Hat Linux Version 2.3 Builds

This page contains information on the 2.3 build releases.

Build 126

Release Date: 14-Jun-2005
Supported Distributions: Red Hat v9 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux v3.0
Restrictions on Distributions: This version supports *only* Red Hat v9 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux v3.0.

Changes:
  • Fixed a condition where some secd thread stacks were too big, which prevented secd from being scalable.
  • Added a warning in dce.h that appears when an application is built on 64-bit machines. This warning is necessary for those who try to build DCE applications on x86-64.
  • Modified the idl compiler so that it now produces the correct output for Linux C++ stubs. Note that when building C++ stubs and programs, you must include Linux <pthreads.h> first, since the C++ headers require linuxthreads.
  • Fixed errmsg segv in DCE pthreads. This problem could occur when testing C++ DCE programs.
  • When cred files are deleted, secd now recreates deleted tickets on refresh, allowing secd to refresh its identity.

Build 141

Release Date: Jun-2007
Supported Distributions: Red Hat v9 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux v3.0
Restrictions on Distributions: This version supports *only* Red Hat v9 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux v3.0.

Overview: Build 141 fixes the problems relating to memory and intercell communication as well as providing improvements to the CDS server.

Changes:

  • Fixed an issue with allocation of client credentials for remote cell communication. The storage allocated was of the incorrect size and was causing data corruption issues.
  • Added additional RPC debugging for allocation and deallocation problems relating to failed TCP RPC calls.
  • Fixed several problems with memory leaks in the cdsclerk client daemon.
  • Added support to increase the number of listen and worker threads in the CDS server to better handle heavy loading conditions. The CDS_LISTEN_THREAD value is set in the dce_services.db file to modify the number of threads. The value can be from 10 to 40. Values exceeding 40 will be set to 40 and values less than 10 will be set to 10 (number of CDS server threads in prior versions). Note, only increase the number of threads if you have cdsclerk deamons in the cell that are growing in memory size under heavy local CDS activity.
  • Reduced the time delay for remastering CDS directories from the master clearinghouse to a replica. Prior versions would see a nominal delay of 10 seconds for each directory. This version reduces that delay to 1 second. The delay time is to allow all CDS servers to properly replicate the directory
