Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1468282
Unable to login with AD user using with sddm
Last modified: 2018-04-30 17:46:10 EDT
Description of problem:
I've configured winbind for authentication using Active Directory. I've executed the following authconfig command:
authconfig --enablewinbind --enablewinbindauth --enablewinbindkrb5 --enablemkhomedir --updateall
I can successfully log in on the commandline:
su - EARTH+administrator
It also works using SSH.
However I'm NOT able to login using sddm:

'setenforce 0' allows me to log in.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 25. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 25 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 28 development cycle.
Changing version to '28'.
