I've set up an LDAP server with user accounts. I've successfully configured a Rails application to authenticate against this LDAP server. I'm now trying to configure SSSD to authenticate against LDAP, but it doesn't like the individual user passwords.

Error:

$ su - leopetr4
Password:
su: incorrect password

SSSD recognizes the user, but not the password:

$ id leopetr4
uid=9583(leopetr4) gid=9583(leopetr4) groups=9583(leopetr4)

Here's what the user record looks like:

# ldapsearch -x -W -D "cn=admin,dc=my_domain,dc=com"  -H ldaps://my_hostname.my_domain.com "(uid=leopetr4)"
Enter LDAP Password:
# extended LDIF
#
# LDAPv3
# base <dc=my_domain,dc=com> (default) with scope subtree
# filter: (uid=leopetr4)
# requesting: ALL
#

Here's the user password hash after base64-decoding the above:

{SHA}oRNO1j31wmt5HVEafcm5f/SRfjo=

It exactly matches the output of slappaswd -c {SHA} "that_password"

Here's the SSSD config:

# cat /etc/sssd/sssd.conf

Here are the SSSD logs when I try to su - leopetr4:

Edit: Here's /var/log/secure for a login attempt:

PAM LDAP config:

base dc=my_domain,dc=com
uri ldaps://my_hostname.my_domain.com
ssl start_tls
tls_cacertdir /etc/openldap/cacerts
pam_password md5

Also:

# authconfig --test | grep hashing
 password hashing algorithm is sha512

Edit 2: Authentication via pamtester works, but it continues to not work via su:

[leonsp@my_hostname ~]$ pamtester login leopetr4 authenticate
Password:
pamtester: successfully authenticated

[leonsp@my_hostname ~]$ pamtester su leopetr4 authenticate
Password:
pamtester: Authentication failure

[leonsp@my_hostname ~]$ pamtester su-l leopetr4 authenticate
Password:
pamtester: successfully authenticated
  1. Why isn't SSSD letting me log in as this user?

  2. Is there something I need to do to configure SSSD to match basic {SHA} hashes?

  3. How do I figure out the difference between authenticating for login and authenticating for su/su-l?

    According to the sssd logs, sssd both authenticated you and then allowed access. I would look into the /var/log/secure file or equivalent on your distribution to see what PAM messages there are and if there is maybe another PAM module acting up. btw using tls_reqcert=never is not a good idea, because then even certificates not trusted by your CA would be allowed. Oh and finally wrong password message by su can mean anything - that's just the default error message the utility has. – jhrozek Nov 28 '15 at 13:05
  • @jhrozek I've added /var/log/secure and pam configuration details to the question – Leo Nov 28 '15 at 19:21
  • Can you also edit the question so that the logs also capture the authentication failure? Because even though the /var/log/secure shows auth failure, the sssd_be logs show success: (Fri Nov 27 21:15:54 2015) [sssd[be[LDAP]]] [be_pam_handler_callback] (0x0100): Sent result [0][LDAP] Can you please edit the files so that the same PAM login is captured and also the PAM responder logs are there? – jhrozek Nov 29 '15 at 20:55
  • @jhrozek I've recaptured /var/log/secure and /var/log/sssd/*.log output for su - leopetr4. – Leo Nov 30 '15 at 18:40

    Hmm, that's really strange, is there nothing else in the domain log? Can you increase the debug_level (10 is the highest)? btw I checked the sdap_save_user source and the failure to get UUID is not fatal. – jhrozek Dec 3 '15 at 7:34

Sorry that I had to use answer to ask these questions...

What is the output of: authconfig --probe and getent passwd leopetr4

Is your system-auth the same as your password-auth? Can you provide your PAM login file as well?

You may also want to try setting cache_credentials = false in sssd.conf and to clear the cache while testing using sss_cache -E

  • Per my answer, the error went away and it started working without an immediately clear reason. authconfig --probe has no output and getent passwd leopetr4 outputs leopetr4:*:9583:9583:Leo Petr 40:/mnt/home/leopetr4:/bin/bash – Leo Dec 8 '15 at 16:12

It's unsatisfying, but su - leopetr4 and ssh leopetr4@my_hostname started working soon after I set the bounty on the question. I spent some time thinking about why that was without coming to a clear conclusion, as it would be bad for it to stop working as suddenly as it started.

One change I recall making is switching the pam_password setting in /etc/pam_ldap.conf from md5 and exop:

#pam_password md5
pam_password exop

However, the change from broken to working was not immediate, so I hesitate to attribute it to that change.
