Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 72606
SMB Authentication Configuration doesn't prompt for backup SMB server
Last modified: 2014-08-04 18:23:36 EDT
The screen for adding SMB Authentication during the install process only
prompts for one SMB server to handle the authentication. The pam_smb module
supports having a primary and a secondary. One can enter the secondary SMB
server in the installer by separating the primary and secondary with a comma
when entering the SMB server. However, this is not documented in the help text
on the left side of the screen.
At best, the panel should prompt for both the primary and secondary SMB server
and state that the secondary server is optional. All but the smallest networks
will have at least two servers for handling authentication. At worst, the help
text should mention that the user can use a comma to separate the primary and
secondary SMB server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Public Beta v7.3.94 (Null)
Ok we can look at fixing the docs in a future release.
This has been fixed and committed to CVS. Thanks again for the feedback.
