I wish the output would have made more  sense to me - it does not quite indicate which files the answers come from.

Ah, sorry, it was stuck in moderation. I let that e-mail through.

I did send them to the list, but at debug level 7 sssd_PEOPLE.log file they
were about 15s KB in total and I sent them as an attachment. I was told to
await till the post is approved by moderator because size over 40KB.

I now put this same file edited for usernames and more descriptive host
names on


sssd_PEOPLE.log was 15 KB
krb5_child.log was empty - 0 bytes.

With thanks,

End of sssd-users Digest, Vol 18, Issue 29

Data comes from nsswitch.conf and pam.conf and specific pam configurations.
What is says is that SSSD is configured for authentication and identity lookups but that your SSSD is not configured to use IPA.
This is as much as I can see from the output.

Thank you,
