Description Scott Poore 2012-12-17 21:56:58 EST
Description of problem:

sssd is not configured to start on boot by IPA install.

My test to confirm here was done with ipa-server-install:

[root@rhel6-1 ~]# chkconfig --list sssd
sssd           	0:off	1:off	2:off	3:off	4:off	5:off	6:off

[root@rhel6-1 ~]# ipa-server-install --setup-dns --forwarder=$DNSFORWARD --hostname=$hostname_s.$DOMAIN -r $RELM -n $DOMAIN -p $ADMINPW -P $ADMINPW -a $ADMINPW -U

<normal looking output removed/>

[root@rhel6-1 ~]# chkconfig --list|grep sssd
sssd           	0:off	1:off	2:off	3:off	4:off	5:off	6:off

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install IPA server
2.  chkconfig --list|grep sssd
Actual results:

Shows sssd not on to support persistent start across reboots.

Expected results:

sssd set to start on boot.

Does this also affect client installs?
Comment 3 Martin Kosek 2012-12-18 04:23:37 EST
(In reply to comment #2)
> Does this also affect client installs?

I just verified that this also affects client installs:

# ipa-client-install --server vm-037.idm.lab.bos.redhat.com --domain idm.lab.bos.redhat.com
SSSD enabled     <<<<<<<
Configured /etc/openldap/ldap.conf
NTP enabled
Configured /etc/ssh/ssh_config
Configured /etc/ssh/sshd_config
Client configuration complete.

The problem here is that authconfig-6.1.12-13.el6.x86_64 does not enable sssd in RHEL-6.4:

# /usr/sbin/authconfig --enablesssdauth --update --enablesssd
# echo $?
# chkconfig sssd; echo $?

When I try this on RHEL-6.3 (authconfig-6.1.12-10.el6.x86_64), the behavior used to be different:

# chkconfig sssd; echo $?
# /usr/sbin/authconfig --enablesssdauth --update --enablesssd; echo $?
Starting sssd:                                             [  OK  ]
# chkconfig sssd; echo $?

I found that this is actually an authconfig feature (see Bug 874527) as authconfig no longer starts or enables sssd service. It seems, we will need to start (we already do that) and enable sssd ourselves.

Adding Tomas Mraz and Jakub Hrozek to confirm that this is correct.
Comment 4 Tomas Mraz 2012-12-18 04:28:58 EST
Yes, the assessment above is correct. As authconfig does not set up the sssd domain in this case it should not enable and start the sssd service.

The log file for this installation can be found in /var/log/ipaserver-install.log
This program will set up the IPA Server.

This includes:
  * Configure a stand-alone CA (dogtag) for certificate management
  * Configure the Network Time Daemon (ntpd)
  * Create and configure an instance of Directory Server
  * Create and configure a Kerberos Key Distribution Center (KDC)
  * Configure Apache (httpd)
  * Configure DNS (bind)

Warning: skipping DNS resolution of host rhel6-1.testrelm.com
Using reverse zone 122.168.192.in-addr.arpa.

The IPA Master Server will be configured with:
Hostname:      rhel6-1.testrelm.com
IP address:
Domain name:   testrelm.com
Realm name:    TESTRELM.COM

BIND DNS server will be configured to serve IPA domain with:

Global DNS configuration in LDAP server is empty
You can use 'dnsconfig-mod' command to set global DNS options that
would override settings in local named.conf files

Restarting the web server
Setup complete

Next steps:
	1. You must make sure these network ports are open:
		TCP Ports:
		  * 80, 443: HTTP/HTTPS
		  * 389, 636: LDAP/LDAPS
		  * 88, 464: kerberos
		  * 53: bind
		UDP Ports:
		  * 88, 464: kerberos
		  * 53: bind
		  * 123: ntp

	2. You can now obtain a kerberos ticket using the command: 'kinit admin'
	   This ticket will allow you to use the IPA tools (e.g., ipa user-add)
	   and the web user interface.

Be sure to back up the CA certificate stored in /root/cacert.p12
This file is required to create replicas. The password for this
file is the Directory Manager password
