Description Pat Riehecky 2015-11-23 10:07:49 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-

How reproducible:100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.seek way to configure LDAP/SSSD or Kerberos support from the GUI installer

Actual results:
No menu options available.  Must manually configure the settings after firstboot attempts to create local users.

Expected results:
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.
Comment 3 Pat Riehecky 2016-01-29 17:13:44 EST
Without disagreeing too much,  I filed this bug here as all relevant options are presented to authconfig[1]

It feels a bit odd to have the LDAP/SSSD team(s) build an anaconda addon for the UI part of existing kickstart options.
