Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 7.0 to Oracle Linux 7.6 [Release OL7 to OL7U6]
Linux x86-64


 User authorization with AD(Active Directory) + GPO(Group Policy Object) fails with the following messages in /var/log/messages:

Dec 11 18:06:19 hostname sshd[1425]: pam_sss(sshd:auth): authentication success; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=ssh ruser= rhost= user=kscadmin
Dec 11 18:06:19 hostname sshd[1425]: pam_sss(sshd:account): Access denied for user username: 4 (System error)
Dec 11 18:06:19 hostname sshd[1425]: Failed password for username from port 40729 ssh2
Dec 11 18:06:19 hostname sshd[1425]: fatal: Access denied for user username by PAM account configuration [preauth]

In case "ad_gpo_access_control = permissive" in /etc/sssd/sssd.conf, any users can login via ssh but GPO is not applied.

In case "ad_gpo_access_control = enforcing" in /etc/sssd/sssd.conf, any users can not login with the error above.
