RFE: for domain security model of Winbind accounts, try to get DC address from SRV records
Last modified: 2016-08-11 07:08:34 EDT
Description of problem:
for domain security model of Winbind accounts, try to get DC address from SRV records.
AD Domain Controllers require setting of SRV records _ldap._tcp.<DNSDomainName> so it can be leveraged in authconfig to find out AD host name automatically (instead of forcing user to type it) - once bug 848407 is implemented
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
A. fill domain FQDN to Windbind Domain field in authconfig-gtk
B. use authconfig option --smbworkgroup <Domain_FQDN> without --smbservers option
A: user has to type DC address separately
B: such setup won't authenticae
A: DC address field is pre-filled based on the SRV record value
B1: authconfig finds DC name and passes correct values to underlying services
B2: rhel can authenticate
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
I am sorry but we are not going to implement this feature in RHEL-6.
