SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 Service Pack 2 (SLES 12 SP2)


The SUSE Linux Enterprise Server Documentation for SLES12: Security Guide - Setting Up Authentication Servers and Clients Using YaST - describes that the module to configure the System Security Services Daemon (SSSD is started by selecting:  Network Services > Authentication Client

On SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 Service Pack 2 the module "Authentication Client" is not available at that location.


The module "Authentication Client" was changed and replaced with the new configuration tool: "User Logon Management".

The Authentication Client configuration and System Security Services Daemon (SSSD) configuration is in the new configuration module: Network Services > User Logon Management.

The  new module is offering a user interface for joining an Active Directory domain and allows authenticating users using those domain accounts.
