 * Filesystem Bug

 * SSSD Tesing  (Kaushik and Nirupama)
   * we workd on https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1534

I think we got the setup working. 
- Machine1: AD Server. 
- Machine2: RHEL6.5 - Samba+winbind connected to AD 
- Machine3: Fedora21 - sssd-1.12.0-2 enrolled directly to AD 

But, I had to turn off ldap id mapping to avoid uid, gid mismatch  conflict with samba server configured on rhel6.5 . Also had to disable  GPO for access being denied by default. 
i.e. The following was added to sssd.conf additionally: 
ad_gpo_access_control = disabled 
ldap_id_mapping = false 

Now, can you check if the following steps are enough to verify cifs  client test: 

- # rpm -qf /usr/lib64/libwbclient.so.0.11.0 

- # ssh -l aduser1 at mars.corp.com localhost 
aduser1 at mars.corp.com@localhost's password: 
Creating home directory for aduser1 at mars.corp.com. 
-sh-4.3$ pwd 
-sh-4.3$ mkdir mountdir 
-sh-4.3$ touch 1 

- # mount.cifs // /home/aduser1/mountdir/ -o  username=aduser1 
Password for aduser1@//  ********* 

- # getcifsacl /home/aduser1/mountdir/1 
GROUP:domain users at MARS.CORP.COM
ACL:domain users at MARS.CORP.COM:ALLOWED/0x0/R

- I didn't see anything in the sssd debug logs other than user/group  lookups. Anything to look out specific to cifs? Do you know howto  access/enable cifs logs? 
- Do we test further read/write access control on the shares? 

 * Virtualization (snapshots)
   * https://kashyapc.fedorapeople.org/virt/Virtual-Machine-Snapshots.txt
   * Create VM using `virt-builder`
     * $ virt-builder fedora-20 -o f20vm1 --format qcow2 --size 10G
