I had created a bug for this https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1276153, and there was an existing bug report too (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1141799), but that's been marked as wontfix. Since this trips multiple people, I would like to propose reopening it.
The upstream ticket is still open, https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/4543 , it just really hasn't seemed to affect that many people which is why it is being considered a low priority to fix.
In retrospect saving a copy of nsswitch.conf is a bit overkill. It really just needs to save and restore the automount entry in /etc/nsswitch.conf, not the whole file.

Fortunately there is a /etc/nsswitch.cof.bak and that did the trick. Rob, your suspicion was correct the sudoers line was missing. It actually looks like the ipa-client-automount --uninstall reverts the nsswitch.conf file to default pre-ipa values. Still a bit curious that the ipa-client-automount --location=server_mounts did not take on the ipa-server. If there is a good reason for this behavior I would suggest that the ipa-client-automount command would not even start it it was executed on the ipa server. thanks everyone! ms ------------------------------------------------------------------------ *From:* Prasun Gera <prasun.g...@gmail.com <mailto:prasun.g...@gmail.com>> *Sent:* Friday, August 26, 2016 4:02 PM *To:* Rob Crittenden *Cc:* m s; email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> *Subject:* Re: [Freeipa-users] ipa-client-automount --uninstall breaks central sudo on ipa-server ipa-client-automount --uninstall was(is?) a bit broken in that it tries to revert back to an older configuration, but it can accidentally revert it to a state before the ipa-client was installed (as opposed to the state where automount was installed). Check your nssswitch.conf file and compare it to other clients on which things work fine. You might notice differences.

How I broke it!!!: I decided to take advantage of the centralized automount feature with a custom location for a couple mounts. When I ran the ipa-client-automount --location=server_mounts it appeared to install correctly but that didn't appear not to work so my plan was to manually setup the automount since it is only one machine. So of course I ran the ipa-client-automount --uninstall on the ipa server and thats when I lost the sudo rights on the ipa server: superuser not in the sudoers file, this incident will be reported. I have repeated this steps with the same results: Initially sudo works for superuser And after ipa-client-automount --location=server_mounts (on the ipa-server) sudo still works but after, ipa-client-automount --uninstall no sudo for superuser on the ipa server but the superuser still has sudo privilages on the clients???? background/versions: My setup is all CentOS 7.2 machines with one ipa server and the rest are clients all using ipa version 4.2.0. I had no issues using the ipa-client-automount on all my clients to configure network homes and shares as well as setting up a superuser with central sudo powers before this happened. 1.) Don't be too harsh if it is a BIG NO-NO to run the ipa-client-automount command on the ipa-server 2.) Not sure what logs or config files i need to post. I'd confirm that sssd is still configured to do sudo by looking for sss in the sudoers line in /etc/nssswitch.conf and ensure that sudo is an enabled service in /etc/sssd/sssd.conf, probably something like: services = nss, sudo, pam, ssh rob -- Manage your subscription for the Freeipa-users mailing list: https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users <https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users> Go to http://freeipa.org for more info on the project
