Comment 3 Tomas Mraz 2013-10-03 04:55:26 EDT
That's weird and in this situation there is still sss in /etc/nsswitch.conf? What is there actually?
Comment 4 David Spurek 2013-10-03 05:12:29 EDT
I look on it now, problem is in misconfigured /etc/nsswitch.conf. It contains sss only in services line, then authconfig --disablesssd --update doesn't remove it. I guess that authconfig has flag somewhere if sssd is disabled, then authconfig --disablesssd --update probably do "nothing", right?
Comment 5 Tomas Mraz 2013-10-03 05:20:39 EDT
Yes, sure. This is just unsupported configuration. To override you can use authconfig --updateall which will forcibly overwrite all configuration files.
