Summary: [RFE] support looking up autofs maps via SSSD

Target Milestone: rcKeywords: FutureFeature
Target Release: ---   
Hardware: All   
OS: Linux   
Fixed In Version: sssd-1.9.1-1.el6 Doc Type: Release Note
Doc Text:
The automounter daemon can now be configured to read autofs maps from a centralized server, for example from a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server. A new SSSD responder can communicate with automounter, which can request maps via SSSD instead of going directly to the server. As a result, automounter is able to serve maps even when the network is down or the server is not reachable.

    Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
    accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
    New Contents:
Cause: Customers request the ability to cache their LDAP-maintained autofs share maps locally, so that an LDAP disruption does not result in a disruption in their ability to automount shares.

Change: SSSD and autofs were updated to allow using SSSD as a source for map information.

Result: As a Tech Preview feature, SSSD can now cache  share maps for autofs.

This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 8 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 22:05:39 EDT
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
