Solution  235361 :   Sun Java System Directory Server 6.2 Database integrity may be compromised

Bug ID: 6642430
Product: Sun Java System Directory Server 6.2, Enterprise Edition
Date of Resolved Release: 14-Apr-2008
SA Document Body: Sun Java System Directory Server 6.2 Database integrity may be compromised

1. Impact

A race condition may cause database pages for Sun Java System Directory Server to not sync to disk, resulting in possible Directory Server Database integrity issues. Depending on which pages are affected, the impact may vary.

2. Contributing Factors

This issue can occur in the following releases for all platforms (Solaris 8, 9, and 10 SPARC and x86 Platforms, Linux, Windows, HP-UX):
  • Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.2
Note: Directory Server 6.1, 6.0, 5.2 and 5.1 are not affected by this issue.


To determine if the Directory Server running on a system is affected, the following command can be used:

$ dsadm -V

If the output contains the version string 6.2, the system is affected.

3. Symptoms

Depending on which database page is affected and which operation tries to access it, the resulting error messages can be different, but in the most frequent cases a message similar to the following is logged:

DEBUG - conn=-1 op=-1 msgId=-1 -  libdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery

4. Workaround

There is no workaround for this issue. Please see the Resolution section below.

5. Resolution

This issue is addressed in the following releases: (please see blog entry http://blogs.sun.com/dsee/entry/dsee_6_3_released for more details)

Note: After patches have been applied: Since the database integrity issue can be present but undetected, it is recommended to rebuild the database by exporting to an ldif file and reimporting the ldif file. In a replicated environment, all servers need to be rebuilt or reinitialized. Export/Import and initializing servers in a replicated environment is documented in the DSEE reference guide at:
