Missing read permissions on /opt/zimbra/common/etc/openldap/slapd.conf

After the 8.8.11 patch 3 I'm seeing the following error while the NG backup runs:

Missing read permissions on /opt/zimbra/common/etc/openldap/slapd.conf

I did run a zmfixperms as root but still see the same message. The permissions on the item are:

-rw------- 1 root root 2179 Sep 18 2018 slapd.conf

Before changing any permissions on the item I wanted to check with the forums / support and see if anyone has run into the issue or has any other ideas on a workaround.

Thanks!

Hi mate,

You are the first, as far as I know. I can confirm to you that my permissions look like this:
-rw-------. 1 root root 2,2K sep 18 2018 slapd.conf

Although I still did not apply the patch 3 in that server.

Release 8.8.11_GA_3737.RHEL7_64_20181207111719 RHEL7_64 NETWORK edition

Although your permissions look ok for me, did you try running your zmfixperms with the "-e" arg?

Change the permissions of the files in that directory to 644 and,FWIW, zmfixperms does not fix the permissions.

As you're a customer I'd suggest you raise also raise a support case to get this fixed correctly.

Another stunning change that breaks part of the ZCS installation and no mention of why the changes were implemented as far as I can see. I've also had this problem with the ZeXtras packages on my OSS server.

Changing file permissions to 0644 worked for me. Thanks!

You're welcome, that fix was from the ZeXtras team after I hit the problem when I updated ZCS then hit that problem.

FWIW, I've got the same errors. I'll change the file perms now.
Thanks!

Zimbra hasn't used slapd.conf since Zimbra 7. It shouldn't even exist, and there's certainly no reason to back it up.
