#3750 [RFE] man 5 sssd-files should mention necessary changes in nsswitch.conf
Closed: wontfix 8 months ago by pbrezina. Opened 2 years ago by tscherf.

Default NSS config when the sssd-files is used should look like this:

passwd: sss files
group: sss files

It might be that this is not always the case though. We should add a note to man 5 sssd-files and explicitly spell out which changes are needed in /etc/nsswitch.conf.

It would also be nice to explain that sssd might start the files domain on its own even without explicit configuration by the admin. Please see the option called enable_files_domain in man sssd.conf -- in discussion about documentation (https://pagure.io/SSSD/docs/pull-request/74) Sumit brought up that this should be documented better.

If you are on Fedora, you should also see the implicit_files domain running automatically on your machine, that should help see what is going on.

In the description, I would just say something like "please note that some distributions enable the files domain automatically, prepending the domain before any explicitly configured domains using the name blablabla...".

Lastly, the enable_files_domain option in the manpage could also say what is the domain name.
