What are the purpose of all these patches?

Joining an AD domain still fails with Enabling SSD in nsswitch.conf and PAM failed..

From the log:

Configured command not found: sssd-enable-service Configured command not found: sssd-restart-service Configured command not found: sssd-enable-longins

This is because the realmd-defaults.conf nor the realmd-distro.conf in /usr/lib/realmd contains those values.

Some distros have a pre-built config with some specific values for those entries: - - - -

Not sure how to adapt one to Arch.


To finish the realm join operation, follow the SSD online/offline guide:

This is the last step missing not covered by the realmd package due to the default configuration provided by the upstream.

this package is a must-have for enterprise computing. it should be in official repository.

I have got following error while installing

PKGBUILD: line 23: ./ No such file or directory

Looks like package problem

Even with SSSD installed there is this issue; "Realm could not be joined: Enabling SSSD in nssswitch.conf and PAM failed."

@lykwydchykyn .. the test fails, because the order of the items in the test-reply changed .. uno <--> one.

The test in release 0.16.3 is broken. The release was three years ago. The issue was fixed in the actual git-master of realmd at 2019-02-22.

I'm not that firm with the syntax of PKGBUILD and quite new to archlinux - maybe, someone could change it to get the sources from "git clone" instead of the old tarball.

(Big thanks @grawity)

Fails to build on my machine:

ERROR:tests/test-sssd-config.c:193:test_update_domain: assertion failed (check == output): ("[domain/one]\nval=1\nuno = 1\neins = one\n[sssd]\ndomains=one" == "[domain/one]\nval=1\neins = one\nuno = 1\n[sssd]\ndomains=one")

No idea what that test indicates, but it fails and building won't continue.

Package is still broken.

Attempting to join a domain results in the error: "Realm could not be joined: Enabling SSSD in nssswitch.conf and PAM failed."

Furthermore, SSSD is a required dependency (not optional).

Does not work on a fresh install. First of all, some cyprus-sasl dependencies of adcli (which realmd relies on) are missing, resulting in an "No worthy mechs found" error. SSSD also needs to be installed manually.
Secondly, after having installed the above packages, the domain join still fails with "Realm could not be joined: Enabling SSSD in nsswitch.conf and PAM failed."
