How to clear sssd caches (hosts, groups, etc).
If DNS (or an LDAP change) needs a quick update on a Cloud VPS VM that runs sssd, sometimes waiting for the cache to expire is not something you want to do for whatever reason. This applies if the host is not running the nscd or a similar OTHER cache for this kind of information. If you are running nscd, you'll have to clear that instead and/or as well (eg.
nscd -i hosts). Anyone operating a Cloud VPS instance with sudo permissions can accomplish this.
- Make sure the Debian package
sssd-toolsis installed. If it isn't on this VM, run
sudo apt-get install sssd-tools
sudo -i sss_cache -Eto invalidate all caches.
That doesn't always work -- in extreme cases you might also need to actively delete the cache files.
# systemctl stop sssd # rm -rf /var/lib/sss/db/* # systemctl restart sssd
