#3089 Error message "Failed to retrieve users" is sometimes misleading
Closed: Fixed None Opened 5 years ago by ondrejv2.

Error message:
[sdap_get_users_done] (0x0040): Failed to retrieve users

is sometimes generated when a request about non-existent user/UID comes. This is misleading and admins might think that something wrong is happening.

Can we fix that?

Fabiano agreed he will take a look

milestone: NEEDS_TRIAGE => SSSD 1.14.1

As I haven't been able to reproduce the issue both on 1.13.3 and git master, I'd like to ask the reporter for a reliable reproducer.

PS: I've been testing using: getent passwd $non_existent_userid

I am able to reproduce it easily:

[root@login03 ondrejv]# rpm -q sssd

    dyndns_update = false
    debug_level = 3
    ldap_id_mapping = False
    ad_domain = <my domain>
    id_provider = ad
    auth_provider = ad
    chpass_provider = ad
    autofs_provider = ad
    cache_credentials = True
    krb5_renew_interval = 3600

# id -a nonexistent_user

Always produces this message
