I’m aware that we can make overrides on AD users with the Default Trust View object on IPA. I’ve created another one for specific users named “Clients Trust” and added three user accounts there. Made the overrides that I want, and when I checked with getent on a Linux client, the overrides aren’t worked.
On the new ID view, there’s this Host options, so I checked two hosts that I’m interested, and still didn’t override.
As a last resort I’ve reset sssd cache, with sss_cache -E, but no success either.
So the question is: Is it supported to override AD users in other trust than the default trust view? If yes how can I debug with the override isn’t working?
Thank you all.
I've got a simple FreeIPA topology with a 1-way trust to a nice
uncomplicated Active Directory environment. Unlike my other projects
there is no complex AD forest or topology to navigate; just a single
Because of this we have short usernames working for login just fine;
works great. Instead of "chris(a)domain.com" I can login as "chris"
However I was asked if it was possible to also use short aka "not fully
qualified" names when looking at local 'id', user and group info
Basically the question was if it was possible to use short names for
everything including id views, getent output and group output
This is where my knowledge hits a wall -- I think this level of username
and group handling is fed into NSS via IPA? If so is there a way to
alter FreeIPA to use unqualified names -- presumably via altering or
creating a new Trust View and applying it to the hosts? Not really sure
if this is sensible or even advisable but I've been asked to research
Here is an example:
## Short login works fine! my AD username is "dagdigian(a)example.com" ...
$ ssh dagdigian(a)172.17.0.57 <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>
Last login: Thu Oct 22 22:37:32 2020 from 10.10.210.63
## But user are asking about the OS view of usernames and groups:
## Is there a way to use non fully qualified names in these sorts of
views, possibly via new Trust Views on the IPA server side?
## Is this even reasonable to consider doing?

On an ipa-client, our customer wants to implement login to a
custom made service using the poco c++ library. There's something
about ldap authenticators on this page:
The customer already hat this implemented with a non-ipa LDAP
setup, but we don't have access to the source code.
1) Is there any experience implementing ldap based authentication
in an ipa ecosystem using poco? Examples, instructions, anything?
2) Is there some code example or even example program for ldap
authentication without poco, in any language ( But C/C++

Several months ago we set up two IPA servers for a separate department.
We also set up a trust to AD. Then the project went on hold. Today I was
told that they want to continue using IPA.
The IPA servers are using CentOS 7.x. Regarding the trust setup, would
it work to add two OL 8.1 servers and remove the old CentOS servers
afterwards? Or is there a better way to do that?
I have a IPA setup, in trust with active directory.
I noticed a strange behaviour in HBAC.
I have a group ("extgroup"), defined as external, containing an active
directory user ("user(a)ad.dom.ain").
I defined a HBAC rule ("allow_AD_ssh") to permit ssh to a host to users
belonging to "extgroup", but the HBAC test (performed with
"user(a)ad.dom.ain") fails. I'm sure the cause is the "Who" section of the
HBAC rule (if I leave "Anyone" it works). So the HBAC is defined as:
WHO: User group "extgroup"
ACCESSING: host I want to give access to
I was pretty sure it was a incompatibility of HBAC rules with external user.
But if I define a standard (POSIX) group (let say "intgroup"), make
"extgroup" member of "intgroup" and use "intgroup" in the definition of
the (section "who" of) HBAC rule, it works like a charm.
Why direct use of external group is not working? Is it a bug? Or is
there a reason I cannot see?
I have successfully deployed my own Freeipa server in my local network. Now I want to configure it as a local domain for our LAN.
All the computers in our LAN has windows installed as OS. Is it possible? How to configure.
Now, my Freeipa server DNS is "example.com". When I try to change the domain of the windows computer I get error.
So, I have been working on creating certificates for services on a solid installation of FreeIPA on a machine we have.
I did everything that this blog stated to do...
But now when I enter the command, sudo ipa-getcert list.
The status is CA_UNCONFIGURED, ca-error is "Error setting up ccache for "host" service on client using default keytab: Preauthentication failed.", stuck is yes.
I checked the krb5.keytab it's set to -rw------- and root:root.
I'm not sure what else I can do to address the problem. Any help would be appreciated.
I'd like to ask of is there any workaround for issuing certificates that will have Common Name longer that 64 characters?
For FREEIPA version less than 4.8.0 which is designated for RHEL 8, when we will have to stay with current version of RHEL 7.
