Description Stef Walter 2014-05-05 06:29:12 UTC
Description of problem:

The realmd polkit policy is completely desktop-centric and expects that the user (admin or not) is logged in an active local session (ie: a seat in logind parlance, with a monitor and keyboard).

This prevents admin (but non-root) use of realmd when logged in via ssh (and using pkttyagent as your polkit agent) or via Cockpit.

The <allow_any> tag in polkit policy applies to non-local sessions. It should be set to something other than 'no' unless the action directly affects hardware of the login seat.

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


How reproducible:

Every time.
