With help from Alexander Bokovoy I found correct log destinations:


These files are from my second Fedora - FreeBSD setup, they have
different domain name, but everything else is identical.

Interestingly enough, there are lines in sssd_nss.log telling that there
are no users or groups in the domain. But as I said, I can ssh to the
IPA server as an IPA user.

Thanks to both of you for the interest.
Here`s the info you asked:

1. Putting "debug_level = 7" either in [domain] or/and [nss] section of the /usr/local/etc/sssd/sssd.conf file gives nothing in the log. The log file located at /var/log/sssd/sssd.log is only populated with data when I make some errors in sssd.conf & sssd process fails to start. But that`s the case only if I deliberately introduce some errors; with current configuration sssd starts successfully.

2. My original sssd.conf (without debugs) is as follows (exact copy of what was shown in the post at FreeBSD forums):

cache_credentials = True
krb5_store_password_if_offline = True
ipa_domain = mydomain.com
id_provider = ipa
auth_provider = ipa
access_provider = ipa
ipa_hostname = ipa1.mydomain.com
chpass_provider = ipa
ipa_server = _srv_ #our FreeIPA server has DNS SRV entries
ldap_tls_cacert = /etc/ssl/ca.crt
enumerate = True #to enumerate users and groups

enumerate = True
services = nss, pam, sudo
config_file_version = 2
domains = mydomain.com




Interestingly enough the [nss] section is empty, just as shown in the post at FreeBSD forums.

3. The users created at the IPA server can`t locally log in to the server, but it`s possible to ssh to the server as an IPA user from the FreeBSD host. However, there are some interesting behaviors (again, this is what happens when just following the IPA Quick Start Quide for the server side & the post from FreeBSD forums for the client side):
 - home directories are not automatically created on the IPA server;
- "id" command output shows correct uid, but the group of any IPA user doesn`t show as "ipausers" - instead, the group name is the same as username, + something like "context=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023".

4. Here is the list of snapshots taken from my FreeBSD VM when I installed necessary ports, maybe these snapshots will provide some additional info on sssd behavior:

  Good day to everybody.
There`s a post on how to make a FreeBSD client work with a FreeIPA server: https://forums.freebsd.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=46526&p=260146#p260146 For some reason the instructions in that post don`t lead to a working solution. Getent passwd/group return no data from the IPA server, although ldapsearch works fine. I followed the instructions exactly (+ configured ldap.conf & started sssd) and didn`t get errors anywhere, all steps completed successfully. My setup: 2 VMs, one is the FreeIPA server (on Fedora 20), the other is a FreeBSD client (on FreeBSD 10.0). IPA server is configured as written in the IPA Quick Start Quide, it has no integrated DNS server.
Both VMs have identical /etc/hosts file:

::1                    localhost         localhost   ipa1.mydomain.com ipa1   bsd1.mydomain.com bsd1

Seems like some instructions in etc/nsswitch.conf file, like "group: files sss" and "passwd: files sss" have no effect.
Does anybody tried this setup, what could be wrong with it?
I can provide outputs of any commands if necessary.
If I shouldn`t have asked this question here, please advise me where to ask.
Any hint on what to do will be highly appreciated!

I think SSSD logs would be the best start..

Put debug_level=7 into the [domain] section, restart SSSD and then check
out /var/log/sssd/*.log

"debug_level = 7" can be put into "nss" section as well.
Could you share your sssd configuration file /usr/local/etc/sssd.conf?
