Hello,

The FreeIPA team is happy to welcome you to a Fedora Test Day that is
being held on Thursday, July 25th.

We would like to invite you to take part in testing of the upcoming FreeIPA 3.3
release containing 2 major improvements for easier deployment of FreeIPA Active
Directory Trust feature to existing environments:

1) Use POSIX attributes defined in Active Directory [1]

With previous FreeIPA releases, users coming from Active Directory to FreeIPA
managed machines were always assigned POSIX attributes (UID and GID) by
algorithmic mapping.

However, in some deployments, Active Directory users and groups already have
defined custom POSIX attribute values (UID and GID), which may then be
leveraged on Linux machines via other 3rd party Active Directory integration
solutions. Administrator may choose to keep the values to not disrupt file
ownerships.

With FreeIPA 3.3, FreeIPA Active Directory Trust may be configured to use these
attributes when Active Directory user authenticates to Linux machines.


2) Expose POSIX data on legacy systems without recent SSSD

Administrators may have a deployment of machines which cannot use the recent
SSSD with Active Directory Trust support but would still like to be able to
authenticate with Active Directory user to these machines. This may affect for
example older Linux machines, UNIX machines.

With FreeIPA 3.3, Administrator may configure a compatibility LDAP tree which
will contain identities of the Active Directory users to the legacy systems.
These systems may then leverage standard LDAP authentication in this tree
allowing selected Active Directory users to authenticate.
