NAME

       sssd - System Security Services Daemon

SYNOPSIS

       sssd [options]

DESCRIPTION

       SSSD provides a set of daemons to manage access to remote directories
       and authentication mechanisms. It provides an NSS and PAM interface
       toward the system and a pluggable backend system to connect to multiple
       different account sources as well as D-Bus interface. It is also the
       basis to provide client auditing and policy services for projects like
       FreeIPA. It provides a more robust database to store local users as
       well as extended user data.

OPTIONS

       -d,--debug-level LEVEL
           Bit mask that indicates which debug levels will be visible. 0x0010
           is the default value as well as the lowest allowed value, 0xFFF0 is
           the most verbose mode. This setting overrides the settings from
           config file.

           Currently supported debug levels:

           0x0010: Fatal failures. Anything that would prevent SSSD from
           starting up or causes it to cease running.

           0x0020: Critical failures. An error that doesn't kill the SSSD, but
           one that indicates that at least one major feature is not going to
           work properly.

           0x0040: Serious failures. An error announcing that a particular
           request or operation has failed.

           0x0080: Minor failures. These are the errors that would percolate
           down to cause the operation failure of 2.

           0x0100: Configuration settings.

           0x0200: Function data.

           0x0400: Trace messages for operation functions.

           0x1000: Trace messages for internal control functions.

           0x2000: Contents of function-internal variables that may be
           interesting.

           0x4000: Extremely low-level tracing information.

           To log required debug levels, simply add their numbers together as
           shown in following examples:

           Example: To log fatal failures, critical failures, serious failures
           and function data use 0x0270.

           Example: To log fatal failures, configuration settings, function
           data, trace messages for internal control functions use 0x1310.

           Note: This is new format of debug levels introduced in 1.7.0. Older
           format (numbers from 0-10) is compatible but deprecated.

       --debug-timestamps=mode

           1: Add a timestamp to the debug messages

           0: Disable timestamp in the debug messages

           Default: 1

       --debug-microseconds=mode

           1: Add microseconds to the timestamp in debug messages

           0: Disable microseconds in timestamp

           Default: 0

       -f,--debug-to-files
           Send the debug output to files instead of stderr. By default, the
           log files are stored in /var/log/sssd and there are separate log
           files for every SSSD service and domain.

       -D,--daemon
           Become a daemon after starting up.

       -i,--interactive
           Run in the foreground, don't become a daemon.

       -c,--config
           Specify a non-default config file. The default is
           /etc/sssd/sssd.conf. For reference on the config file syntax and
           options, consult the sssd.conf(5) manual page.

       -h,--help
           Display help message and exit.

       --version
           Print version number and exit.

SIGNALS

       SIGTERM/SIGINT
           Informs the SSSD to gracefully terminate all of its child processes
           and then shut down the monitor.

       SIGHUP
           Tells the SSSD to stop writing to its current debug file
           descriptors and to close and reopen them. This is meant to
           facilitate log rolling with programs like logrotate.

       SIGUSR1
           Tells the SSSD to simulate offline operation for one minute. This
           is mostly useful for testing purposes.

       SIGUSR2
           Tells the SSSD to go online immediately. This is mostly useful for
           testing purposes.
