Hello --

We are running CentOS 7.2 on a virtual machine, and we are trying to set up LDAP authentication. The ldap packages that are currently installed on the system are the following:

python-sss 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4
python-sssdconfig 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4
sssd 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4
sssd-ad 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4
sssd-client 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4
sssd-common 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4
sssd-common-pac 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4
sssd-dbus 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4
sssd-ipa 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4
sssd-krb5 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4
sssd-krb5-common 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4
sssd-ldap 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4
sssd-libwbclient 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4
sssd-libwbclient-devel 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4
sssd-proxy 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4
sssd-tools 1.13.0-40.el7_2.4

I ran the following commands to set up LDAP/AD authentication:

# ln -s /bin/bash /bin/PHSshell
# ln -s /home /PHShome
# authconfig --enablesssdauth --enablemkhomedir --enablesssd -update
# chkconfig sssd on
# service sssd restart

Initially, I ran into problems because I had not created an sssd.conf file. Eventually I did create one, and its contents are the following:

[<domain>.org]
enumate = true
cache_credentials = TRUE

id_provider = ldap
auth_provider = ldap
chpass_provider = ldap

ldap_uri = ldap://ldap.<domain>.org
ldap_search_base = dc=<domain>,dc=org
tls_reqcert = demand
ldap_tls_cacert /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt

If there are any additions or corrections that I need to make, please let me know.

I reran the service sssd restart command, and the error message that I am seeing via journalctl -xe is the following:

Unit sssd.service has begun starting up.

Any ideas?
