I'm running sssd on RHEL6 and seem to have a problem seeing secondary/auxiliary groups
for logged in users.
I'm using SASL/Kerberos/LDAP authentication to an AD backend. I'm using this
enumerate = true
cache_credentials = True
id_provider = ldap
auth_provider = krb5
chpass_provider = krb5
ldap_schema = rfc2307bis
ldap_user_object_class = user
ldap_group_object_class = group
ldap_user_member_of = msSFU30PosixMemberOf
ldap_group_member = msSFU30PosixMember
ldap_uri = ldap://xxx.xxx.xxx/
ldap_search_base = dc=xxx,dc=xxx,dc=xxx
ldap_group_search_base = ou=Groups,dc=xxx,dc=xxx,dc=xxx
ldap_sasl_mech = gssapi
ldap_sasl_authid = host/hostname.xxx.xxx.xxx(a)xxx.xxx.xxx
ldap_krb5_keytab = /etc/krb5.keytab
ldap_krb5_init_creds = true
krb5_realm = xxx.xxx.xxx
Logging in works fine, and I can specify an "ldap_access_filter" to limit the
people who can log into the machine by the AD groups they are in and it works a treat.
The problem I have is: when I log in I can not see the secondary groups that my userid is
in. When I run "id" or "groups", I only see my primary group:
[tim@rhel6 ~]$ groups
If I run the "groups" command on a RHEL5 system (using ldap/krb5/pam_ldap), you
see many groups:
[tim@rhel5 ~]$ groups
sysadm unixdef edc0002 midrange midora cifrs cifru yyyyy cdirt pdiru jbsrt cdir cdird
edcrt cdiri voiru voirs estrt pc4rt middlemr pc4ru insrd insrt insrs fess dplrt dplru

I've been through the red hat bugzilla and sssd trac and I don't see a solution.
I have set my schema to
"rfc2307bis"<https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=580402> and I
have enumerate = true<https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=626775>
I'm wondering if sssd only grabs the first 1000 users and 1000 groups and then stops:
[root@rhel6 /]# grep 1000 /var/log/sssd/sssd_KRB5DOMAIN.log
(Tue Dec 21 14:50:11 2010) [sssd[be[KRB5DOMAIN]]] [sdap_get_users_process] (6): Search for
users, returned 1000 results.
(Tue Dec 21 14:50:17 2010) [sssd[be[KRB5DOMAIN]]] [sdap_get_users_done] (9): Saving 1000
Users - Done
(Tue Dec 21 14:50:21 2010) [sssd[be[KRB5DOMAIN]]] [sdap_get_groups_process] (6): Search
for groups, returned 1000 results.
(Tue Dec 21 14:50:36 2010) [sssd[be[KRB5DOMAIN]]] [sdap_get_groups_done] (9): Saving 1000
Groups - Done
[root@rhel6 ~]# getent group | wc -l
[root@rhel6 ~]# wc -l /etc/group
Could it be because our AD has many more than 1000 users and 1000 groups? If so, if there
any way to increase this limit?
Alternatively, if we there was a group search filter option that would also reduce the
number of groups to enumerate, but I see this feature has already been
I'm not convinced this 1000 record limit exists or is even the root cause of my
problem though. If there's anything you guys can suggest I'd be most
