[openFATE 313142] YaST support only SSSD for LDAP based authentication
Feature changed by: Jan Engelhardt (jengelh)
Feature #313142, revision 11
Title: YaST support only SSSD for LDAP based authentication

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Mandatory

Requested by: Ralf Haferkamp (rhafer)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
We should remove support for nss_ldap and pam_ldap configuration from
the YaST ldap-client module (note: this is not a request to remove
nss_ldap and pam_ldap from the distribution) and only support SSSD for
LDAP based users authentication. The nss_ldap and pam_ldap packages
should still be part of future distribution to still allow manual
setup.
When updating an nss-/pam_ldap based system from an older release it
should stay with nss-/pam_ldap. Upon first startup of yast2-ldap-client
it might offer a migration to sssd.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: Focussing on a single implementation for LDAP
authentication allows us to provide a cleaner UI and should reduce the
complexity of the YaST ldap-client module considerably. Making it
easier to use and maintain.

Discussion:
#1: Jiri Srain (jsrain) (2012-01-19 10:03:14)
Joe, Matthias, this is in fact about removing existing functionality.
How comon are the non-SSSD set-ups?

+ #6: Jan Engelhardt (jengelh) (2012-01-23 22:36:15) (reply to #1)
+ They can be migrated.
