Fixed In Version: ipa-2.1.0-1.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Using the --no-sssd option of ipa-client-install did not properly back up and restore existing sssd.conf. Consequence: nsswitch.conf was not properly configured for use without sssd and the existing sssd.conf was lost. Fix: Pass --enableforcelegacy to authconfig and always back up sssd.conf. Result: Using the --no-sssd option works as expected and sssd.conf is properly restored during uninstallation.

Description Namita Soman 2011-03-30 14:31:32 UTC
Description of problem:
When installing IPA Client using --no-sssd option, logs do not indicate sssd.conf was backed up (like there are debug line outputs when other files are backed up)
Next when uninstalling this client, the sssd.conf is not restored correctly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ipa-client-2.0.0-16.el6.x86_64

How reproducible:
always


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install using command:
ipa-client-install -p admin -w Secret123 --no-sssd -d
2.Then uninstall
3. /etc/sssd/sssd.conf is not restored to the contents it had before install.
  
Actual results: sssd.conf still has the section
[domain/default]
auth_provider = krb5
krb5_realm = TESTRELM
id_provider = ldap
ldap_id_use_start_tls = False
chpass_provider = krb5
cache_credentials = True
ldap_tls_cacertdir = /etc/openldap/cacerts



Expected results:
Be restored back to original sssd.conf
