The only other thing I can think of is the group scope. Please make sure
the group is not domain-local, other scopes will do.

Hmmm. No, the group is Universal, so that's ruled out. I'm really interested in this one. I wonder if it's because the ipa in CentOS is so ancient?

I added a user override yesterday and it's not noticably changed at all - her account still id's with the AD UID (1750704475) instead of the local UID number (5685), there's no recognition that her account has been added to the appropriate group.

I have tried all of the following without success:

sss_cache -u <username>
systemctl stop sssd; sss_cache -u <username>; systemctl start sssd;
systemctl stop sssd; sss_cache -E; systemctl start sssd;

I know that I can

systemctl stop sssd; rm -rf /var/lib/sss/db/*; systemctl start sssd;

I also know that this will *work*.

Unfortunately, we are finding with this set up (HBAC, pam.d, RStudio server) that it kills all active sessions, which is hard to manage on a high use node. ("Users get grumpy").

Also, I saw you mention recently that you wish people didn't do it, so I'm taking this opportunity to provide a debug opportunity - how do we make sss_cache work?


"The antidote to apocalypticism is apocalyptic civics. Apocalyptic civics is the insistence that we cannot ignore the truth, nor should we panic about it. It is a shared consciousness that our institutions have failed and our ecosystem is collapsing, yet we are still here — and we are creative agents who can shape our destinies. Apocalyptic civics is the conviction that the only way out is through, and the only way through is together. "
