authconfig / sssd.conf: "dns_discovery_domain" issue
Last modified: 2016-07-19 15:27:28 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):
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
the following line has been added to sssd.conf :
ldap_uri = ldap.example.com
this line should not be inserted to sssd.conf
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.
