#2041 [RFE] User's home directories and shells are not taken from AD when there is an IPA trust with AD
Closed: Fixed None Opened 5 years ago by jhrozek.

Ticket was cloned from Red Hat Bugzilla (product Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6): Bug 990688

1. Proposed title of this feature request
Allow per user modification to login shell and home directory by reading the
value from AD when there is a trusted relationship between AD and IPA.

3. What is the nature and description of the request?
Currently there is only a default template applied by SSSD for the login shell
and the home directory. SSSD should be able to read the unix home directory and
shell attribute from AD and use that. If the value doesn't exist then it can
use a default value.

4. Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)
He would like to customize home directories and login shells on a user by user
basis.

5. How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional
requirements here)

SSSD uses the unix login home directory and shell from AD.

The customer also suggested locally configuring an sssd value for each user.
This may be possible with something like the "username map" option used in the
smb.conf where another file is referenced that contains home directory and
shell values for users.


6. For each functional requirement listed, specify how Red Hat and the customer
can test to confirm the requirement is successfully implemented.

The home directory and shell attributes listed in AD are used.


7. Is there already an existing RFE upstream or in Red Hat Bugzilla?
A tracking bug was/is also going to be created in Red Hat Bugzilla by sbose
He said to create this one for SSSD as well.

8. Does the customer have any specific timeline dependencies and which release
would they like to target (i.e. RHEL5, RHEL6)?
RHEL6

9. Is the sales team involved in this request and do they have any additional
input?
no

10. List any affected packages or components.
sssd

11. Would the customer be able to assist in testing this functionality if
implemented?
Yes, this is a tech preview for IPA and they are currently evaluating it.

With the server mode present on the IPA server, it should be able to fill the response from the extdom plugin with the shell and homedir easily.
