Hi All,
we have setup FreeIPA 4.1 (Centos 7) Trust with Windows 2008R2. All (HBAC,
SUDO) works pretty well except SSH SSO using GSSAPI from Windows AD clients
(ex. putty) to Linux client machines (Centos 6). Password authentication
works, just gssapi fails.
Do you have have anything in the SSH server logs when using high enough
debug level?

SSH GSSAPI (single sign-on) should just work fine. On contrary, delegation or 
of credentials (i.e. Kerberos TGT from AD side being available after
login to SSH server) should not work unless ok-as-delegate flag is set
on the host principal -- see 'ipa host-mod --ok-as-delegate=TRUE'.

So what exactly is not working:

1. Logging in without entering a password from AD-joined Windows
station with PuTTY?

2. Logging in without the password works but no Kerberos ticket
available in the shell?

3. Logging in always requires password and then Kerberos ticket is not
available in the shell?

4. Something else?

Actually, there is one scenario where SSH GSSAPI authentication works  ->
when connecting to FreeIPA master or replica (trust were established here),
but not to FreeIPA host clients.

Important sections of configuration files (servers/clients):

GSSAPIAuthentication yes
KerberosAuthentication yes
Remove 'KerberosAuthentication yes', you don't want it to be used, only

auth_to_local = RULE:[1:$1 <at> $0](^.* <at> WINDOWS.DOMAIN$)s/ <at>
WINDOWS.DOMAIN/ <at> windows.domain/
auth_to_local = DEFAULT
You don't need to specify auth_to_local rules in krb5.conf in RHEL 7.1
because we now have this filled in by SSSD. As you are claiming FreeIPA
4.1 is in use, it means CentOS 7.1, thus SSSD automatically contributing
auth_to_local plugin.

BTW. after I log in by password to linux client machine I can use gssapi
within the same host by ssh-ing in a loop to the localhost, so locally
GSSAPI works here.
This is expected and is by design.

Is there something I missed?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Answer my questions above, I suspect all you need is to mark the host
principal as available for delegation.
