read the previous mails, sssd and winbind do not do the same job, especially
not in smbd file/print server setups.

you are talking about completely different setups here. A smbd
file/print server does not use pam at all.

nobody said that sssd needs winbind. *smbd* needs winbind to get the idmapping
with domain users right.
