Here's what I'm seeing:
Feb 12 16:02:49 watcher sshd: User scarolan from 10.2.3.102 not
allowed because none of user's groups are listed in AllowGroups
I have UsePAM turned on, and getent group shows me in the "operations"
group. I wonder why sshd is not seeing that I'm in the operations
You don't also have the "operations" group defined in LDAP by any
chance, do you?
If you're going to start mixing local and LDAP stuff that way, you're
going to run into some fun-to-debug strangeness if you're not careful
about them all being identical.
I'm guessing you've also defined the group in LDAP either with different
members or a different GID, or that you've done the same with the user.
