OpenLDAP & SSSD Question
by Borresen, John - 0444 - MITLL
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.
