Fix Version/s: None
Team:Data Release Production
lsst-dev7 has recently (9 August) been updated to use LDAP authentication. I understand that this is being rolled out to all LSST development systems at NCSA shortly.
Following the update, I see failures in some (but not all) unit tests like this:
Bill Glick [X] on HipChat tells me:
/var/lib/sss/mc/passwd is the cache file of for user information with SSSD/LDAP users. I'm unclear how that relates to pipe_tasks unit tests. Every time a user process/session runs, it will open that file and keep it open during that session. I think the test suite needs to be updated to ignore that file. /var/lib/sss/mc/group is also similar. They are memory-mapped cache files used by SSSD.
Please resolve this before LDAP authentication is rolled out to all of the LSST systems at NCSA.
