Configuring Samba with SSSD

Fri, 09 Nov 2018 18:07:05 GMT

Hi folks, I know that Winbind with Samba added to a MS domain is not a supported configuration with ClearCase, but what about SSSD? Has anyone gotten it to work, even though I gather it's not an officially supported configuration? TIA

Using SSSD is essentially another mechanism to use LDAP. This will bring the account information over (user ID's and groups) and presumably give you the same UID and GIDs for the same user across hosts (which is one of the reasons we don't support winbind -- it doesn't guarantee this). The only real tricks here are: 1. You need to make sure that you install the appropriate sssd-client libraries for your clearcase binary architecture (32-bit or 64-bit). 2. This SUPPLEMENTS, not eliminates the samba configuration. You still need to configure samba as per our instructions.
