I am having a problem where a user is trying to authenticate to our
European servers while sitting in our Asian office where the link is not
of the best quality.
What he is experiencing is a number of failed authentication attempts.
SSSD version 1.8.5 from Timo Aaltonen's PPA running on Ubuntu 12.04.
sudo: pam_sss(sudo:auth): Request to sssd failed. Broken pipe
[sssd] [monitor_quit] (0x0010): Monitor received Terminated: terminating
I am attaching our sssd.conf (template, treat [% ... %] entries as
containing valid information, I can't disclose that).
From what I understand, an LDAP query is being fired, but it cannot
complete due to network going down each now and then.
Can we do something to limit the impact of failed communication attempts?
