Any way to remove domain name at end of username when authenticating with ldap (sssd)?
The authentication mechanism (sssd) on my RedHat server adds the domain at the end of usernames which is causing a problem when trying to log into a UniData database. Currently what is getting passed is firstname.lastname@example.org but the db is looking for username. Is there any way to change this on the server?
I believe it is part of the Kerberos authentication process. By convention, the network domain name is also used as the Kerberos realm name. This uniquely identifies the user and prevents cross realm failures(ie attacks) and provides better distributed naming facilities. Even if the username is the same, it is made unique by the realm (or domain) name.
The db should accept the expanded name, though instead of specifying just the username, it may require having "username@domainname" form. I don't believe any of the characters are improper for most database systems.
A domain is a database containing user information. SSSD can use more domains at the same time, but at least one must be configured or SSSD won't start. This parameter described the list of domains in the order you want them to be queried.
Default regular expression that describes how to parse the string containing user name and domain into these components.
