I would discourage enumeration especially if you're planning on a large domain. The performance right now is not great. Moreover, the way the trusted accounts are retrieved doesn't support enumeration at all either. > > Problem 1: > ======== > > I created a user group on the ipa server with the following attributes: > > name = xyx, gid = 1000 > > I changed the user "jdoe" to have gid = 1000, but when I ssh into the ipa > client, I get the following message after > logging in: > > /usr/bin/id: cannot find name for group ID 1000 > > A "getent group" command does list the group: xyz:*:1000: > > A "groups" command issued by the user shows: xyz > > files created by the user show the correct ownership and group. I would first try to remove the sssd caches because uid/gid renumbering doesn't work great. If that doesn't help, please check the sssd logs. By the way, 1000 is quite low and would most probably clash with local accounts.
