Thank you for this information. Yes, /tmp is writable.

My problem is : access are sometimes definitively refused for random user who wants to log in diskless workstations. But if this banned user tries to connect to the single machine which mounts the fs in rw mode, it's work, and this solve immediately its problem on all the other stateless machines !? Strange...

Hi everybody,

        Each diskless workstation mounts its filesystem in RO mode from a single
NFS share, with some specific directories (like /var/lib/sss) mapped RW in

I can't speak for other components, but /var/lib/sss/ is the only
directory sssd writes to (except tmpfiles, but I guess /tmp would also
be a writable fs?)
