Description of problem:
While installing IPA client on test machine found that SSSD service always fails to restart. Found that 

# ls -lh /etc/sssd/sssd.conf
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 483 Dec  1 19:12 /etc/sssd/sssd.conf

changing permissions from 644 to 600 fixes issue.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to enroll system into IPA environment using 'ipa-client-install'

Actual results:
ipa-client-install fails to restart sssd service 

Expected results:
ipa-client-install should be able to restart sssd service

Additional info:

ipa-client-install can restart service sssd after changing permission to 600 for file /etc/sssd/sssd.conf

Since ipa-client-install configures SSSD I think ipa-client-install should make sure that the permissions on the file are correct.

Moving to ipa.
Comment 2 Lukas Slebodnik 2015-12-01 09:05:56 EST
It's not bug in sssd. It's expected behaviour.

The file /etc/sssd/sssd.conf should be readable only by root.
sh# ls -l /etc/sssd/sssd.conf
-rw-------. 1 root root 4334 Dec  1 13:29 /etc/sssd/sssd.conf

Did you have /etc/sssd/sssd.conf on you machine before enrolling to IPA server?
If the file did not exist then it might be an issue in ipa-client.

sssd set umast to 0o177 in method write (class SSSDConfig)
1468         old_umask = os.umask(0o177)
1469         of = open(outputfile, "wb")
1470         output = self.dump(self.opts).encode('utf-8')
1471         of.write(output)
1472         of.close()
1473         os.umask(old_umask)
Comment 4 Abhijeet Kasurde 2015-12-01 09:53:21 EST
Closing bz as CLOSED NOTABUG as due to mis-configuration file permissions got changed for /etc/sssd/sssd.conf.
