Description Dmitri Pal 2012-03-08 14:19:54 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

Sudo client sends two synchronous requests to sssd:
1. for default options providing none information (sss_sudo_send_recv_defaults())
2. for user rules providing username (sss_sudo_send_recv())

This can end up in mixing sudoers from two domains:
1. we have domains A, B (both sudo enabled) and user X@B
2. X@B does sudo
3. sudo requests default options - we will return cn=defaults from A
4. sudo requests rule for X - we will return rules from B

We should send username and uid in sss_sudo_send_recv_defaults(). Then find the domain the user is a member of and return this domain name to sudo.

Sudo will then request the rules giving us username, uid and domain.

Comment 1 RHEL Program Management 2012-07-10 06:13:18 UTC
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 2 RHEL Program Management 2012-07-11 02:04:51 UTC
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
