I tried sssd  in Ubuntu-Saucy ,clean installation,  AD provider.


“+” sides:

-can join AD with ‘realm’  :

-auto created krb5.keytab for computer

-auto created DNS entries for computer


“-“ sides:

-sssd on start auto generates buggy /etc/sssd/sssd.conf

(white space before end of line in entry:

realmd_tags = manages-system joined-with-samba;


-cannot login  as member@ad_domain from GUI login even if

‘id member@ad_domain’ cli can find out data


This is my auto configured config file:



domains = a.c.example.com

config_file_version = 2

services = nss, pam


ad_domain = a.c.example.com

krb5_realm = A.C.EXAMPLE.COM

realmd_tags = manages-system joined-with-samba

cache_credentials = True

id_provider = ad

krb5_store_password_if_offline = True

default_shell = /bin/bash

ldap_id_mapping = True

use_fully_qualified_names = True

fallback_homedir = /home/%u

access_provider = ad


Any ideas?


Best regards
