Hi Rob

The users do have the sambaSamAccount ObjectClass.

Or to be more precise, some have sambasamaccount (all lower case), and some
have sambaSAMAccount (mixed case)

Are objectclasses case sensitive?

No, unless there is a bug in the objectclass matching/comparison code.

Hi Alexander

This issue got overtaken by others, and slipped off my radar for a bit...

While the solution suggested earlier in this thread at

sounds interesting (and we are running the correct versions of OEL 7.1
SSSD), it seems to require the Windows clients to be members of an Active
Diretory trusted by IPA.

Unfortunately there is no AD in our architecture - our Windows and OSX
clients are effectively islands. That would seem to leave us stuck with

After a user has had his password reset via the IPA WebUi to a temporary
value, the user then logs on using the temporary password, and is asked
enter a new password. At his point sambaPwdLastSet should be set to a
positive value. However our testing indicates that it is not. We have
3 techniques:

1) User connects to LDAP server via remote ssh.

2) kinit <user>

3) su - <user> over an existing ssh session with another user (e.g. mine)

In all three cases the user is able to set their password, but
sambaPwdLastSet remains set to 0.

As a workaround we use Apache Directory Studio to manually set
sambaPwdLastSet once the user has changed his password.

AFAICT the user needs the sambaSamAccount objectclass in order for this
to work. Is that the case?
