Enhancement Advisory authconfig enhancement update

Advisory: RHEA-2011:1003-1
Type: Product Enhancement Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-07-21
Last updated on: 2011-07-21
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated authconfig packages that add an enhancement are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The authconfig packages contain a program with both a command line and a GUI
interface for configuring a system to use shadow passwords, or to function as a
client for certain network user-information and authentication schemes.

This update adds the following enhancement:

* This update adds the new '--enablesssd' and '--enablesssdauth' command line
switches. These options allow administrators to configure the nsswitch.conf and
system-auth configuration files so that the System Security Services Daemon
(SSSD) is used for account database lookups and authentication. Note, that
configuration of the SSSD itself is not handled by authconfig and must be done
by other means. (BZ#629021)

All authconfig users are advised to upgrade to these updated authconfig
packages, which add this enhancement.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
