HERE IS THE SUPPOSED FIX. I HAVE NOT ATTEMPTED AS OF YET, BUT AM GOING TO
- Backout patch 108993-29, although this re-introduces the security bug
fixed in this release (BugID 4830525).
- Replace /etc/lib/nss_files.so.1 with an old version
Copy /etc/lib/nss_files.so.1 from a Solaris 8 system which doesn't
have this patch installed yet.
Alternatively, extract the file from the backout area:
# cd /var/sadm/pkg/SUNWcsr/save/108993-29
# uncompress -c undo.Z > /var/tmp/undo.datastream
# cd /var/tmp
# mkdir undo.filesystem
# pkgtrans undo.datastream undo.filesystem SUNWcsr
Transferring <SUNWcsr> package instance
# cp undo.filesystem/SUNWcsr/reloc/etc/lib/nss_files.so.1
Now that you have the file, replace the bad version:
# cd /etc/lib
# ln nss_files.so.1 nss_files.so.1-29
# ln nss_files.so.1-old nss_files.so.1
This workaround is confirmed on SPARC with etc/lib/nss_files.so.1
from Solaris 8 FCS so it should work with all versions of the file
prior to -29 on SPARC and x86.
HOPE THIS HELPS !!!
