[Samba] Question(s) about user mapping

I've setup samba4 to authenticate against a separate LDAP server. I can ssh to my server but attempts to login to a windows7 member server using the ldap domain are not working.

Relevant errors:

It appears that some manner of user id mapping is being searched for. What I really want is for it to preserve and use the domain that was passed in rather than substituting it.

CentOS 6.4 x64
Samba 4.1.0
Sssd 1.9.2
