Description of problem:
sosreport is not capturing /etc/sssd/sssd.conf
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
many customer cases
Code in question: https://github.com/sosreport/sos/blob/legacy-3.9/sos/plugins/sssd.py
Line in question: https://github.com/sosreport/sos/blob/73524dc167179039e89a5af65f0c10c2b4fa4192/sos/plugins/sssd.py#L25
Did few tests in all was /etc/sssd/sssd.conf collected.
Can you please share with us at least 1 sosreport which is missing /etc/sssd/sssd.conf ?
# rpm -qa | grep sos
# sosreport --build --batch -o sssd

I might know what is going on:
sosreport automatically enables the plugin whenever "sssd" package is installed. If a customer runs "sosreport -[o|e] sssd", it will enable the plugin manually and config file will be collected. Since the config file is present (and sssd functionality available) on the system, sosreport should detect "sssd is present" in more broader way. Since:
# yum provides /usr/sbin/sssd
sssd-common-1.16.5-10.el7_9.7.x86_64 : Common files for the SSSD
Repo : rhel-7-server-rpms
Filename : /usr/sbin/sssd
and installing sssd-common package, no "sssd" package is present, shouldn't we change
packages = ('sssd',)
packages = ('sssd', 'sssd-common')
in sos/plugins/sssd.py#L21 ?
Could somebody with sssd packaging knowledge confirm, if the above test is precise detection of SSSD functionality/feature present on a system?
Raising needinfo on the reporter, to validate if "sssd-common" is the right (and the only relevant) package to be added to the test to automatically enable sssd plugin.
Maria, can you please reply on question above?
question which Pavel asked. Currently is sssd details collected by sosreport when "sssd" package is present as per
And all sosreport you shared does not have package sssd which means sosreport will not run sssd plugin.
Question was if we should run sssd plugin with different conditions for example if "sssd-common" package is installed or with any other package?
Same as for other plugins we will not collect everything every time, so we need to know conditions when to collect sssd related data.
