Description Dmitri Pal 2013-09-12 14:36:48 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:


When the SSSD is configured to use the IPA provider


When the SSSD is configured to use the IPA as the ID provider

since id provider is the one we inherit as sudo provider.

We should also say that sudo has to be put in "services". There is a sample configuration that shows that, but it is not mentioned explicitly.

We should mention that nisdomain has to be configured when using netgroups/hostgroups.

Fixed upstream.

Temporarily moving bugs to MODIFIED to work around errata tool bug

Verified the bug on SSSD Version : sssd-1.11.2-10.el7.x86_64

The sssd-sudo man page has been updated with the following information:

Note: in order to use netgroups or IPA hostgroups in sudo rules, you also need to correctly set nisdomainname(1) to your NIS domain name (which equals to IPA domain name when using hostgroups).

       All configuration that is needed on SSSD side is to extend the list of services with "sudo" in [sssd] section of sssd.conf(5). To speed up the LDAP lookups, you can also set search base for sudo rules using ldap_sudo_search_base option.

       The following example shows how to configure SSSD to download sudo rules from an LDAP server.

           config_file_version = 2
           services = nss, pam, sudo
           domains = EXAMPLE

           id_provider = ldap
           sudo_provider = ldap
           ldap_uri = ldap://example.com
           ldap_sudo_search_base = ou=sudoers,dc=example,dc=com

       When the SSSD is configured to use IPA as the ID provider, the sudo provider is automatically enabled. The sudo search base is configured to use the compat tree (ou=sudoers,$DC).
