I have not; we already had the OpenLDAP configuration in place, since that 
is what we used before Samba4 came along. It was easier to just change the 
port number and continue using it. We use sssd on the 200+ Linux clients, 
and on the busiest servers we run with enumeration turned on, otherwise 
the lookup load is too high for the DC's to keep up.

If you do go that route, I'd be very interested to hear the results.
