RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Doc Type: Known Issue
Doc Text:
.Downgrading `authselect` after the rebase to version 1.2.2 breaks system authentication The `authselect` package has been rebased to the latest upstream version `1.2.2`. Downgrading `authselect` is not supported and breaks system authentication for all users, including `root`. If you downgraded the `authselect` package to `1.2.1` or earlier, perform the following steps to work around this problem: . At the GRUB boot screen, select `Red Hat Enterprise Linux` with the version of the kernel that you want to boot and press `e` to edit the entry. . Type `single` as a separate word at the end of the line that starts with `linux` and press `Ctrl+X` to start the boot process. . Upon booting in single-user mode, enter the root password. . Restore authselect configuration using the following command: + ---- # authselect select sssd --force ----

Rebase to latest upstream release.

Comment 5 Pavel Březina 2020-11-30 11:02:46 UTC
authselect-1.2.2 release notes: https://github.com/authselect/authselect/releases/tag/1.2.2

I think sanity testing only is needed expect one change:
- All generated files are now owned by authselect and if authselect package is uninstalled, the /etc/authselect/nsswitch.conf and /etc/authselect/*-auth files are copied to their system location (/etc/nsswitch.conf, /etc/pam.d/*-auth) and the whole directory /etc/authselect is removed. This should be tested to make sure we don't end up with broken system.
