Description of problem:
It does not seem that authconfig configures sudo to read its sudoers configuration from LDAP.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Use authconfig to configure a computer to use LDAP.
The line "sudoers: files ldap" is not added to /etc/nsswitch.conf.
I would expect authconfig to be able to add "sudoers: files ldap" to /etc/nsswitch.conf, so that I don't need to manually edit the file after running authconfig.
authconfig-6.2.6-4.fc20.x86_64 same on fedora 20
I don't know if it needs to be default but having the following may work
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
I updated the bug to cover Fedora 21, since Fedora 19 is reaching the end of its life.
Moving to authselect for consideration. Authconfig is deprecated.
Authselect will configure sudo to use sssd if you choose sssd profile . We do not plan to support native ldap in upstream profiles, but users can create their own profile if sssd is not an option for them.
Authselect does indeed have the sudo feature. Thank you for pointing out this new tool; it had not yet come to my attention.
