Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 578325
authconfig uses sss for automount
Last modified: 2013-04-09 07:27:30 EDT
Description of problem:
automount currently does not support sssd, but authconfig --enableldap --enablesssd results in:
automount: files sss
Needs to be:
automount: files ldap
Mar 30 13:46:11 cynosure automount: ignored unsupported autofs nsswitch source "sss"
and no automounted directories are available.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
There is a slight problem with this - will that really work in all cases to combine sss and ldap in this way?
Wouldn't it be better to just disable sssd altogether if you need automount?
Well, this is something of an interesting case. SSSD will work just fine combined with nss_ldap for other maps. However, it will add to the duties of authconfig.
Authconfig, when setting up LDAP as the identity store, will need to configure both the sssd.conf (for users and groups) and also the traditional ldap.conf (so nss_ldap can handle automount and friends).
The resulting configuration should be:
passwd files sss
shadow files sss
group files sss
netgroup files ldap
automount files ldap
This should be a perfectly sound configuration. As I said, the only limitation is that it requires configuring both sssd.conf and ldap.conf (which you may already be doing. I don't know the internals at the moment).
OK, I'll modify the nss configuration according to this.
authconfig-6.1.3-1.fc13 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 13.
authconfig-6.1.3-1.fc13 has been pushed to the Fedora 13 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update authconfig'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/authconfig-6.1.3-1.fc13
On rhel5 I have:
in nsswitch.conf and it works anyway...?
Are you using LDAP to serve automount information? If not, then this is irrelevant to you.
No I'm not
authconfig-6.1.3-1.fc13 has been pushed to the Fedora 13 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Similar issue in RHEL 6:
automount: files sss ldap
Should this be cloned to track that?
I don't need it, as we have authconfig-6.1.3 already staged for the next beta release.
