Description Steven Haigh 2019-09-30 14:27:16 UTC
When upgrading a working FreeIPA install from F30 to F31, I find the following problem when launching FreeIPA.

# ipactl start --ignore-service-failure
Existing service file detected!
Assuming stale, cleaning and proceeding
Starting Directory Service
Starting krb5kdc Service
Starting kadmin Service
Starting named Service
Starting httpd Service
Starting ipa-custodia Service
Starting pki-tomcatd Service
Starting smb Service
Failed to start smb Service
Forced start, ignoring smb Service, continuing normal operation
Starting winbind Service

Forced start, ignoring winbind Service, continuing normal operation
Starting ipa-otpd Service
Starting ipa-ods-exporter Service

In debugging this, starting samba via `smbd -i -d 10` ends with the following debug output:
No builtin backend found, trying to load plugin

Comment 1 Alexander Bokovoy 2019-09-30 14:46:26 UTC
Thanks for the report. This is due to commit c906153cc7af21abe508ddd30c447642327d6a5d in Samba which went into 4.11 release. I'm working on a fix.

Comment 3 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2019-09-30 14:56:17 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker and Freeze Exception for 31-final by Fedora user abbra using the blocker tracking app because:

 Samba 4.11 did remove a set of functions required by FreeIPA. This breaks upgrade of Fedora 30 to Fedora 31 if trust to Active Directory is configured in FreeIPA. A fix upstream for FreeIPA is available at and is currently being reviewed.

It could be Freeze Exception but I also asked for a blocker due to how it affects upgrade process.

Comment 4 Geoffrey Marr 2019-09-30 22:29:29 UTC
Discussed during the 2019-09-30 blocker review meeting: [0]

The decision to classify this bug as a "RejectedBlocker" and an "AcceptedFreezeException" was made as it breaks only if a non-default feature not in the criteria (AD trust) is enabled, but accepted as a freeze exception to help minimize the number of affected upgrades.
