Description Marcus Moeller 2011-03-15 11:39:04 EDT
from man sssd-ldap  

ldap_user_uid_number (string)
 The LDAP attribute that corresponds to the user´s id.

 Default: uidNumber

ldap_user_gid_number (string)
 The LDAP attribute that corresponds to the user´s primary group id.

 Default: gidNumber

This differs from the values in the example config file:

# ldap_user_uid_number = msSFU30UidNumber
# ldap_user_gid_number = msSFU30GidNumber
Comment 1 Dmitri Pal 2011-03-15 12:00:31 EDT
The example file is AD centric since the AD is currently a predominant option. I frankly do not see a bug here. The defaults are correct for a generic POSIX case but for AD you need to use the specific attributes that are given in the example.

Would you mind providing more details about why you think this is wrong otherwise we will close the bug.
Comment 2 Stephen Gallagher 2011-03-15 12:05:01 EDT
This is not a bug. That line in the example config file is attempting to demonstrate how to set the UID and gid values when using an older Active Directory as opposed to a POSIX-compliant LDAP server.
