Hi Craig

I am actually working on this very thing at the moment.

there is a very basic config here
(http://freeipa.org/page/Dovecot_Integration), however this is using pam
for everything

The end goal of course is sso in which I have managed to get gssapi for
authentication working and pam is used for the user lookups..

Here is what I have in a working state on rhel 6.2

#####

yum install -y oddjob-mkhomedir
chkconfig oddjobd on
service oddjobd start

ipa-client-install -U -p admin -w redhat123 --mkhomedir

# configure dovecot
chkconfig dovecot on
sed -i 's/#protocols = imap pop3 lmtp/protocols = imap/g'
/etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
sed -i "s-#mail_location-mail_location =
mbox:~/mail:INBOX=/var/spool/mail/%u-g" /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-mail.conf
echo "userdb {" >> /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-auth.conf
echo "  driver = static" >> /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-auth.conf
echo "  args = uid=dovecot gid=dovecot home=/var/spool/mail/%u" >>
/etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-auth.conf
echo "}" >> /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-auth.conf
sed -i 's/auth_mechanisms = plain/auth_mechanisms = gssapi/g'
/etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-auth.conf
sed -i "s/#auth_gssapi_hostname =/auth_gssapi_hostname = $(hostname)/g"
/etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-auth.conf
sed -i "s-#auth_krb5_keytab =-auth_krb5_keytab =
/etc/dovecot/krb5.keytab-g" /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-auth.conf
sed -i "s/#auth_realms =/auth_realms = $(hostname --domain)/g"
/etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-auth.conf
sed -i "s/#auth_default_realm =/auth_default_realm = $(hostname
--domain)/g" /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-auth.conf

kinit admin

ipa service-add imap/$(hostname)
ipa service-add imaps/$(hostname)
ipa-getkeytab -s ds01.example.com -p imap/$(hostname) -k
/etc/dovecot/krb5.keytab
ipa-getkeytab -s ds01.example.com -p imaps/$(hostname) -k
/etc/dovecot/krb5.keytab
chown dovecot:dovecot /etc/dovecot/krb5.keytab

service dovecot restart

By having the system tapped into the ipa domain, pam allows dovecot to
pass user lookups successfully. With the gssapi changes to
/etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-auth.conf and using a keytab for the service
principles, users can log in successfully without issue (i have only
tested this with gssapi only at the moment)

successful authentication appears in /var/log/maillog as follows

Feb  2 22:50:45 mail04 dovecot: imap-login: Login:
user=<us...@example.com>, method=GSSAPI, rip=192.168.122.61,
lip=192.168.122.44, mpid=2216, TLS

the only issue I am presently facing is with the mail_location directive
in dovecot..

unless the users homedir actually exists you will get errors like this.

Feb  2 21:52:34 mail04 dovecot: imap(user1): Error: user user1:
Initialization failed: Initializing mail storage from mail_location
setting failed: mkdir(/home/user1/mail) failed: Permission denied
(euid=1201600003(user1) egid=1201600003(user1) missing +w perm: /home,
euid is not dir owner)

I have been experimenting with how best to address this, however I am
constantly being pushed back to the only way of having a userdir that
actually exists would be a homdir which would be created when a user
first logs in.

Yes, if you ssh to the dovecot server as the user (with oddjobd running
in the background) it will create the homedir  with no problems and the
issue is resolved, however users should not *have to* interactively log
into a server just to allow them to access mail.

my only thinking here is shared homedirs (nfs?) between clients and
servers, however my thoughts on this are "if dovecot is redirecting a
users mail to their homedir, then why do we need dovecot to access it
via imap when the mail will already appear in their homedir?"

does anyone have any thoughts on this?
