Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1000362
sudo + sssd + local user sends e-mail to administrator
Last modified: 2013-12-20 21:24:54 EST
Description of problem:
When sudo is used with sssd and a local user runs sudo, an e-mail is sent to administrator, because sssd does not support sudo rules for local users. It is not an error, only noise.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
shel$ rpm -q sudo
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure sudo to use sssd as data source ('sudoers: files sss' in /etc/nsswitch.conf
2. run sssd
3. log in as local user
4. run 'sudo -l' as local user
E-mail is sent to administrator:
"problem with defaults entries ; TTY=pts/2 ; PWD=/home/fuero"
No e-mail is sent.
The bug has already been fixed in RHEL6.4
This bug is in fedora 19, thus it have to be in RHEL7.
This bug prevents use of sudo rules with SSSD against FreeIPA in Fedora 19.
David, please fix it asap. No reaction in 4 months is a shame.
I've used patch from 1.8.8 from rawhide, added a fix from RHEL6.4 mentioned in the bug 879633 and built this scratch build: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=6314141 for Fedora 19.
Feel free to reuse, we need a fix in Fedora 19.
sudo-1.8.6p7-2.fc19 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 19.
sudo-1.8.6p7-2.fc19 has been pushed to the Fedora 19 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
