moira disagrees with glibc’s nss_hesiod about grplist format

Cc: Fixed in version:
Upstream bug:


glibc is expecting the Hesiod grplist to be a colon-separated list of gids, but Moira is generating a colon-separated list of gname:gid pairs.

Since I own a Moira group with name “0”, this would cause me to end up in the group with gid 0 (i.e. “root”) if not for nss-nonlocal:

$ hesinfo andersk grplist

We probably can't change the grplist format. We could possibly add a new HesiodType?, if we can tell nss_hesiod to use something other than grplist. Someone should follow up with Garry.

I think we want to fix this by moving to LDAP, actually.
