Please find fixed patch in attachment.

I'll check that, thanks for noticing it.

Yes. We pull host's uids to the container in runtime


so that hopefully covers at least some of the use cases -- for example,
you can use host's usernames in /etc/sssd/sssd.conf (think apache) and
the sssd in the container will not complain because it will know about

SSSD teams says the protocol used on the Unix sockets is and remains
compatible. Ideally we'd probably like to have the versions in sync.

How are other "system" containers addressing it? What is the process
of rebuilding these containers to keep them en par with the Atomic
versions, and the naming?



uses fedora:22 (it was the latest released version when it was added)
while it does not exist in f22 and f23 branches at all.

Subject: [PATCH] Add sssd-client for PAM and NSS and oddjob-mkhomedir for
 homedir population.

With SSSD in a container (fedora/sssd), we still need some bits on the host
to talk to the SSSD.
