Hi All,


I am trying to get SSSD working with an Active Directory.


The SSSD machine is a member of the sub domain student.example.com and this works as expected.


I can do all the getent, id’s and groups:


[root@puppetmaster-test sssd]# getent group "Server Administrators"

server administrators:*:10006:sa.cassond

[root@puppetmaster-test sssd]# getent passwd sa.cassond

sa.cassond:*:10005:10006:Don Casson:/home/sa.cassond:/bin/bash

[root@puppetmaster-test sssd]# groups sa.cassond

sa.cassond : server administrators

[root@puppetmaster-test sssd]# id cassond

uid=10007(cassond) gid=10006(server administrators) groups=10006(server administrators)



When I do the same for users in the parent domain (example.com)


[root@puppetmaster-test sssd]#  getent  passwd duckd@example.com

[root@puppetmaster-test sssd]#


I get no users and this error in the sssd_nss.log:

Please help! Do I need to be on a higher version of SSSD to support subdomains with the “id_provider=ad”? Am i missing something in the configuration to support sub domains? Is this a bug in SSSD ?



OS and SSD version: RHEL 6.3 and sssd 1.9.2-129



config_file_version = 2

domains = student.example.com

services = nss, pam, ssh

debug_level = 7



# The following prevents SSSD from searching for the root user/group in

# all domains (you can add here a comma-separated list of system accounts that

# are always going to be /etc/passwd users, or that you want to filter out).

filter_groups = root

filter_users = root

reconnection_retries = 3

debug_level = 7



debug_level = 7



# disable Windows SID to UID mapping

ldap_id_mapping = false

debug_level = 7

cache_credentials = true

#enumerate = true

case_sensitive = false

id_provider = ad

ad_domain = student.example.com



# LDAP options

ldap_user_shell = loginShell

ldap_user_home_directory = unixHomeDirectory

ldap_schema = rfc2307bis


ldap_group_member = msSFU30PosixMember

Thanks in advance.
