Just a confirmation from my side here. You might go with
sssd for the end-user workstation case for some reason, but
please use winbind for the file server case. winbind does
the workstation case well also, so the main reason for sssd
is the IPA/LDAP backend flexibility in the workstation case.

With best regards,
