Description Jenny Galipeau 2009-07-29 12:52:48 EDT
Description of problem:
With an LDAP BE configurated, if the directory server is unavailable on the first search attempt, it times out at five minutes regardless of what the domain timeout configuration value 

[root@jennyF11 jenny]# time getent -s sss passwd

real	5m0.008s
user	0m0.000s
sys	0m0.004s



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sssd-0.4.1-3.fc11.i586
sssd-debuginfo-0.4.1-3.fc11.i586

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure new SSSD client for LDAP BE - with timeout = 30
2. stop the targeted directory server or take the server off line
3. from the sssd client  
   time getent -s sss passwd
4. change the timeout in the sssd.conf domain configuration to 10
5. restart sssd
   service sssd restart
6. time getent -s sss passwd
  
Actual results:
command times out after 5 minutes regardless of timeout configuration

Expected results:
timeout after the specified domain timeout configuration and error message that the data provider is unreachable - also should document what the default time out is.

Additional info:

sssd.conf:

[services]
description = Local Service Configuration
activeServices = nss, dp, pam

[services/nss]
description = NSS Responder Configuration
# the following prevents sssd for searching for the root user/group in
# all domains (you can add here a comma separated list of system accounts are
# always going to be /etc/passwd users, or that you want to filter out)
filterGroups = root
filterUsers = root

[services/dp]
description = Data Provider Configuration

[services/pam]
description = PAM Responder Configuration

[services/monitor]
description = Service Monitor Configuration
#if a backend is particularly slow you can raise this timeout here
sbusTimeout = 30

[domains]
description = Domains served by SSSD
domains = LDAP

[domains/LDAP]

provider = proxy

#if a backend is particularly slow you can raise this timeout here
timeout = 30
