Join the Centos boxes to the domain and set /etc/nsswitch to:

1. for winbind:
passwd: files winbind
group: files winbind

2. for sssd:
passwd: files sss
group: files sss

3. for nss-ldap or nss-ldapd
passwd: file ldap
group: files ldap

I'm not sure how Cendos does pam but you'll need that too.
May start you thinking along the right lines.
