Fixed In Version: sssd-1.9.2-102.el6
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
Feature: A new option to avoid downloading group members was added. Reason: In many deployments, the administrator cares only about retrieving group memberships for the user, not the other way around. Moreover, if group members are not downloaded and stored to cache, SSSD gets a significant performance boost. Result (if any): The administrator may now to disable downloading group members, resulting in large performance gains.

GSS Approved for Hot Fix


* Customer impact (or Business case)
Initial login from users take a long time. Up to 8 minutes if they have a large number of group memberships. This slow downs initial logins and sudo. This is not really acceptable to the customer because they have to manage about 350 Linux hosts. Migration from winbind to sssd was a recommendation from RedHat, because sssd would be faster than winbind.

As they plan to release this in about 3 weeks. They do not want to wait till Red Hat 6.5 is released.
