[RFE] clear way to setup LDAP/SSSD support from interactive installer
Last modified: 2016-01-29 17:13:44 EST
Description of problem:
In RHEL6 under Advanced User settings, it was possible to setup LDAP/SSSD support from the interactive installer. This option does not appear within the GUI installer.
As a result, when installing a workstation the Admin is prompted to create a local user.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):anaconda-22.214.171.124-1.el7
Steps to Reproduce:
1.seek way to configure LDAP/SSSD or Kerberos support from the GUI installer
No menu options available. Must manually configure the settings after firstboot attempts to create local users.
able to setup remote auth so that local users are not required.
This sort of configuration step can be provided by an anaconda addon rather than part of the main installer. The kdump and subscription-manager addons are examples of this. The Installer Team is happy to help the LDAP/SSSD team(s) build an anaconda addon that can offer this configuration step, but it should not be part of the standard installer.
Depending on what configuration steps you want, open an RFE against the appropriate components requesting an anaconda addon to enable install-time support of that daemon or program.
Without disagreeing too much, I filed this bug here as all relevant options are presented to authconfig
It feels a bit odd to have the LDAP/SSSD team(s) build an anaconda addon for the UI part of existing kickstart options.
