Description of problem:

Description of problem:
We would like to let the user easily enable offline logins (ie be able to login
with domain credentials when disconnected) when winbindd is in use

Additional info:

To do so it would be necessary to add a checkbox to the current winbind options
dialog that asks the user if he wants to enable winbindd offline mode.

2 things need to be configured if the checkbox is checked.

the pam stack pam_winbindd lines need to have the "cached_login = yes" option set.
And "winbind offline logon = yes" need to be added to smb.conf

I'm working on this - do you have any idea for short descriptive text for the
checkbox in the dialog?
Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2007-07-25 14:31:47 EDT
Built as authconfig-5.3.16-1.fc8 in rawhide - but probably won't be included in
the Test1.
Comment 3 Simo Sorce 2007-07-26 04:25:26 EDT
I'd say something like:
enable offline support
enable credential caching support for offline authentication
Comment 4 Tomas Mraz 2007-07-26 06:55:34 EDT
I've called it "Allow offline login". Is it OK?
Comment 5 Simo Sorce 2007-07-26 08:28:13 EDT
Absolutely, very good choice indeed!
