Description Najmuddin Chirammal 2012-09-26 08:43:17 EDT
Description of problem:

As per man sssd-ldap : 

ldap_access_filter (string)
  If using access_provider = ldap, this option is mandatory. It specifies an LDAP search filter criteria that must be met for the user to be granted access on this host. If access_provider = ldap and this option is not set, it will result in all users being denied access. Use access_provider = allow to change this default behavior.

The option 'ldap_access_filter' is not mandatory if we use ldap_access_order = <something other than filter>
