Can't make the date?
If you come to this page before or after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test, file any bugs you find at Bugzilla, and add your results to the results section. If this page is more than a month old when you arrive here, please check the current schedule and see if a similar but more recent Test Day is planned or has already happened.

What to test?

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on making the support for users coming from a trusted Active Directory domain available to legacy (non-SSSD) clients as well as providing support for using POSIX attributes from AD.

Who's available


We need your feedback!

Prerequisite for Test Day

Architecture SHA256SUM
x86_64 checksum-tbd
i686 checksum-tbd
Please make sure that the LiveCD has enough memory to operate. We recommend:
  • At minimum 2.5 GB of memory for non-graphical run
  • At minimum 3 GB memory for graphical (GNOME) run
  • An up-to-date Fedora 19 instance along with a custom repository containing the required packages
    • TODO - Add links to a repository at
  • An updated Rawhide (tips on installing Rawhide below), or a nightly live image

How to test?

This test day focuses on making users and groups from a trusted AD domain available to a wide range of clients. Even if your flavor of Linux or UNIX client is not described in the steps below, you are still welcome to join the test day! In general, the testing would include:

  • Establish a trust between an IPA server and an Active Directory instance following the steps below
  • Set up the LDAP client software (such as nss_ldap or pam_ldap) on your client to point to the IPA server
  • Retrieve identity information about users coming from the trusted AD domain
  • Authenticate as a user coming from the trusted AD domain

Please report any issues you find using the channels described above or simply start a thread on the freeipa-users mailing list.

Test Cases

Install/Setup Tests:

Test Results

Construct a table or list to allow testers to post results. Each column should be a test case or configuration, and each row should consist of test results. Include some instructions on how to report bugs, and any special instructions. Here's an example, from a Palimpsest test day:

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for the component udisks, or gnome-disk-utility for bugs in the Palimpsest graphical front end itself. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from the first line as a template. The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one. For each test case, use the result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.
