Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1020044
accountsservice needs fix for gnome unlock screen
Last modified: 2014-09-13 14:57:55 EDT
GNOME's unlock screen will avoid locking if it thinks the user has no password. accountsservice incorrectly says the user has no password for remote users.
We need this fix:
user: treat NULL shadow entry as "password handled remotely"
Right now we set the password mode of a user based on the password hash in shadow. SSSD (and other remote login facilities presumably) don't send the password hash over the wire to the client, but of course those users do have a password set. This commit changes the code to notice when there's no shadow entry for a user and treat that case conservatively (assume user has a password).

Though, if bug 1019488 goes through, we can just close this bug, since 0.6.35 includes the fix.
(bug 1019488 went through, so we can close this one too)
