configure realmd to allow login without domain name [Resolved]

Is it possible to configure realmd to allow users to login via a domain without specifying it?

I've used the "fully-qualified-names = no" option so that usernames don't show the domain name, but they still need to enter the domain (e.g. "") to log in. Ideally I'd like the log in to check local users first, and then try the domain if it fails.

I'm using gnome user chooser on a Debian (jessie) based system.

Changes made to realmd.conf only take affect when joining a domain or realm.

You'll need to either leave and join the domain again, or make the requisite changes to winbind or sssd.

For example, with sssd, you would edit /etc/sssd/sssd.conf and set use_fully_qualified_names to false.

If you want to add the default domain suffix so you don't have to type every time you type your username, run

sed -i '/nss,/a default_domain_suffix = CONTOSO.COM' /etc/sssd/sssd.conf
