Note that even if you use SSSD, you may still want to join the machine to 
the domain.  This way you get automatic working kerberos keys (assuming 
you set your smb.conf to use the system keytab file).

Looks like the package you need for the "net" binary needed to join is 
"samba-bin-common".  If you want to use winbind, you'll also need the 
"winbind" package.
