Hi Stef and the list,
I was about to close SSSD upstream ticket #1917 but I wanted to check if
we're all on the same page. Sorry for copying the whole devel list, but
I know there's already been quite some discussions about how to handle
the fully qualified names properly.
Turns out that the fqname format actually is user@domain already, but for
AD domains, the realmd sets it to "domain\user", in particular, sets the
"full_name_format" param to "%2$s\%1$s". I think the whole confusion
from the fact that the re_expression default in SSSD that parses the
input is different in AD/IPA and the other providers, while the output
full_name_format is currently always the same, so the realmd sets it on
With the recent fixes for discovering the NeBIOS name dynamically (#1468)
and allowing the NetBIOS name in the fq format (#1648), I believe the right
thing now would for realmd to stop setting the "full_name_format" parameter
altogether and name the domain according to the AD domain name (rhbz#960270).
Then the users could simply rely on the default user@domain fqdn output
and set the short\name themselves if needed.
Does it all make sense? Can I simply close #1917 as worksforme?
you prefer an upstream or rhbz bug against realmd to stop setting
I agree with this change. This has already happened upstream, and should
be the case in realmd 0.14.1.
