Is the domain part of the client machine also ix.test.com? The way we determine which SRV record to use is as follows: 1) If dns_discovery_domain exists in the config file, it is always used. 2) If not, first try the domain part of the machine's hostname (aka hostname -d) 3) If that fails, try the name of the SSSD domain (in sssd.conf [domain/<domainname>] IIRC ipa-client-install should set [domain/<IPA domain name>] so if that's not the same as your DNS domain, we could be having problems. Can we see your sssd.conf please? (feel free to sanitize as needed) - -- Stephen Gallagher RHCE 804006346421761 Delivering value year after year.
