Description guillard 2013-10-11 08:03:16 EDT
Description of problem:
if sssd uses dns discovery to look for ldap servers, then
the DNS zone to query for ldap server is specified with
the parameter "dns_discovery_domain" in sssd.conf, and the
parameter "ldap_uri" should not be declared.

If "dns_discovery_domain" is specified in sssd.conf, then
the configuration script 'authconfig' should not insert an
"ldap_uri"in sssd.conf, which it does.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

1. edit sssd.conf and declare a "dns_discovery_domain" domaine

2. launch "authconfig" with apropriate flags: --ldapserver="ldap.example.com" --enableshadow  --enablesssd --enablesssdauth --enableldap --enableldapauth --updateall

3. "ldap_uri"

Actual results:

the following line has been added to sssd.conf :

ldap_uri = ldap.example.com

Expected results:

this line should not be inserted to sssd.conf

Additional info:

After tshark investigations, it sounds like when both "ldap_uri" and "dns_discovery_domain" are declared in sssd.conf, then sssd uses ldap servers declared in "ldap_uri" server rather than querying the dns to look for the relevant ldap server to work with.
