(Samba Team people with knowledge about setups involving
sssd may very well have good advice and support on these
lists though. This has also happenend in recent threads.
Some advice came from people who definitively have experience

Well. AFAIK, _some_ members of the samba team are also developers
of sssd, but not in their role as samba developers.

personal experience with sssd), several important
features of winbindd in a samba domain member scenario
are not sufficiently replaced by sssd.
I hope this helps.
