Discussion:
OpenLDAP & SSSD Question

Hopefully someone out there can shed some light on this.



Running OpenLDAP 2.4.40 on our CentOS 5 servers, with an assortment of
CentOS 5, 6, 7; Fedora20+, Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04. The CentOS 5's are
running as straight LDAP clients. The others are using SSSD / LDAP.



On the CentOS 5, when running "getent hosts", it will return the entire LDAP
Hosts dbase; which is the behavior we want.



On all the systems running SSSD, they only return the local hosts file. If
explicitly adding a host to the command "getent hosts some_host", it will
only return if the host is in the local hosts file or DNS; never searching
(watching the logs) either the LDAP or SSSD. Debug is at maximum.



Again any help is appreciated.



Thanks,

JD Borresen

AFAIK sssd does not support hosts map.
Therefore you have something different on your CentOS 5 servers.
Consult the hosts line in /etc/nsswitch.conf.

Ciao, Michael.

Thanks Michael;

I thought I had read that somewhere (about SSSD not supporting hosts map),
too...but, can't find the reference. The hosts entry on all our clients are
essentially the same:

Hosts dns files ldap sss

The older CentOS 5 systems don't have "sss" obviously.

IMO there's no point defining "ldap" and "sss". YMMV.

Correct; we don't. But you can use 'sss' for the maps we do support
(passwd,group,netgroup,...) and ldap for those we don't.

(this is also getting off-topic for this list, sssd-users might be a
better venue for sssd-specific questions)
