LDAP look up group name only show sid

I follow manageIQ doc use external auth with windows AD it works fine, but the group name is sid.
Is this possible use name to create the group?

Hi @MilkBotttle this external auth uses sssd for user auth and you can invoke ‘id username’ from MIQ appliance bash console for sssd cache populating. After that groups should displayed by names.

Thanks @igortiunov, my group show the name in AD.
The other question.
Do I need run id command after reboot the system or service?
Or do once after I configured the sssd.

I think that this issue should have a corresponding bug request because every time you have to clean the sssd cache will pop up this problem.

Hi @MilkBotttle

Can you please check what type of groups whose names SID instead of name. Global or Universal ?

I found source BZ for this issue:



And there is related BZ for CFME


Fixed In Version: sssd-1.15.2-43.el7

Ok guys. After updating appliance to RHEL 7.4 this issue has solved:

 rpm -qi sssd
 Name        : sssd
 Version     : 1.15.2
 Release     : 50.el7
 Architecture: x86_64
Install Date: Tue 01 Aug 2017 01:58:29 PM MSK

Hi @igortiunov

Thanks for the status update and I checked RH site, RHEL 7.4 is released on 01 Aug 2017, 4:52 PM GMT.

But miq appliance to my knowledge is using centos 7.3 not RHEL 7.3.
Wondering how can you do the appliance upgrade from centos to RHEL ?

HI @tjyang

I’m sorry I use CFME and today I update it to 7.4

For MIQ related patch should come soon with centos 7.4

@igortiunov, no problem at all. Thanks again for keeping us posted on this issue.

There should be big changes from 7.3 to 7.4, hope miq can survive the version upgrade like CFME on RHEL.
I will definitely take an OS snapshot of miq before the update when centos 7.4 is out.

Yes, the MIQ appliance update is big challenge. But you can update only particular packages such as sssd.

In general, for production use only CFME is suitable not only for reasons of good maintenance but also for the purpose of improving the quality of the product. Because each subscription provides programmers coffee and cookies :grin:
