[SSSD-users] timeout and offline mode behaviour

Hello everone,

we have an issue/problem that seems highly related to the current 
"timeout and offline mode behaviour".

We have several SSSD 1.9.5 systems with "cache_credentials = true", 
which experience periodic blocking/pausing of the complete X session for 
several seconds (~5-10) when these machines are not connected to their 
home network. The user is not able to use the machine at all during 
these lockups, which is very annoying...

These are some of the details:
1) The LDAP server has a local 192.168.x.x IP, which is resolvable globally.
2) The LDAP server is behind a firewall, dropping packets from outside 
3) The lockups seem to occur if the clients are not connected to this 
"home" network but to a different network with similar configuration 
(192.168.x.x, which is pretty common).

I am still trying to track down the issue with "debug_level = 9" and get 
the logs of such a lockup.

Could you let me know which openLDAP version you are using and 
suspecting to be the problem?
Could you let me know how to trigger/test the issue reliably (the DNS 
setup you are using to trigger it)?

I would like to confirm that we are having the same or possibly 
different problem...

Best regards,
Joschi Brauchle
