AD only sends 1000 entries at a time. This is called paging and we plan
to support paging with sssd 1.6 (see trac ticket #658). With this large
amount of users and groups I would recommend to set 'enumerate = false',
because for most of the typical uses cases this should be sufficient.
OK, I've done some more testing and I believe I've found the issue.
My original testing was on RHEL6, which currently ships with v1.2.1 of sssd. This version
doesn't show the aux groups no matter what I do with "enumerate" or if I
restrict my ldap_group_search_base to a filter than returns less than 1000 groups.
The way I got things to work was by downloading the stock RHEL6 SRPM and rebuilding it
with sssd v1.2.2. So I guess somewhere in v1.2.1 -> v1.2.2 there was a patch to fix
the auxillary group search in LDAP.
Note, this works now whether "enumerate" is set to true or false.
Looks like I have to wait until RHEL6 supports sssd v1.2.2 or higher before we can migrate
our server fleet to RHEL6.
Thanks for your help.
