With an AD backend, by default the AD provider sets case_sensitive ==
False. This has the desired action of lower-casing user names. (and group
names). But not home directories.
How can we similarly lower case home directories? Our AD admins have an
edict to camel-case their home directory and user name entries in AD.
(Apparently, some high-level manager wishes to see user names in camel
In our old commercial AD integration product, it had a setting:
lowercase-homedirs = true
and then it took whatever it found in AD and merely lower cased it.
To sort of work around this problem when doing a sssd migration, we have
override_homedirs = /home/%u
This works. But effectively, this is throwing out whatever is in AD and
replacing it with /home/<lower case user name>
This only works because all our home dirs. are under /home. What about
other companies that need to lower-case their home dirs., but they’re not
always under /home? How would you lower-case home dirs. in sssd?
you are right, currently SSSD uses the home directory string provided by
AD as is without modifications. I guess you are looking for something
like '%o' for override_homedirs which does not add the original value
but the lower-case version.
