#893 The full dyndns update message should be logged into debug logs
Closed: Fixed None Opened 10 years ago by jhrozek.

Right now, the dynamic DNS update message is not logged anywhere. I suspect that the reason for not including it were security concerns.

I think the message should be logged, because the logs are readable by root only anyway and moreover the update message only contains the following data:

- hostname of the client
- IP addresses of clients's network interface (either the one the client uses to connect to LDAP or one selected in the sssd config file)
- client DNS zone
- Kerberos realm of the client
- IPA server hostname

Adding the full nsupdate message would help in debugging dyndns issues as it would be possible to use the same message directly with nsupdate from the command line.

Raising priority to "major".

Without this logging, it is nearly impossible to debug issues related to the dynamic update feature.

I would recommend, however, that we should only log this information at debug_level = 5 or higher.
