#2938 Cannot start sssd after switching to non-root
Closed: Fixed None Opened 4 years ago by lslebodn.

Reproducer:

  • enable logging to files (and not to journald)
  • start sssd as root ("user = root" in "[sssd]" section of sssd.conf
  • start sssd as non-root ("user = sssd" in "[sssd]" section of sssd.conf

sh# service sssd start
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start  sssd.service
