Hi, having configured SSSD on RHEL 6.4 to connect to our OpenLDAP
server successfully, I can get a list of users and groups using the getent command but
cannot ssh into the host or login via the console.
The following error message is returned in /var/log/secure:
May 8 12:18:26 rh-test-mg01 sshd: pam_sss(sshd:auth): authentication success;

jimbob: 6 (Permission denied)
May 8 12:18:26 rh-test-mg01 sshd: error: PAM: User account has expired for jimbob
These are my ldap details:
# extended LDIF

# filter: (objectclass=*)
# requesting: ALL
# jimbob, People, XXX.com

Maybe some attributes of shadowAccount indicate that the account is
expired? They might not be visible for an anonymous bind.
If I comment out the following line in /etc/pam.d/password-auth then I can login via ssh
but still not the console.
#account [default=bad success=ok user_unknown=ignore] pam_sss.so
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If you mean by console the text terminal then it makes sense, because
the login program uses system-auth instead of password-auth in it's pam
configuration. Nevertheless I would recommend to modify the SSSD
configuration instead of the PAM configuration.
I assume that you have configured an access_provider in your sssd.conf,
see man sssd.conf for details. If you remove the access_provider entry
it should work for all services.
To find out about why SSSD thinks that the account is expired logs with
a high debug level are needed, but as said before I assume that the
shadow attributes might be the reason.
