Got to agree with Jeremy here, I initially thought sssd was great and 
better than winbind, this was only because I wasn't setting winbind up 
correctly. Once I twigged what I was doing wrong and set up winbind 
correctly, it all fell into place and I stopped using sssd, for normal 
use you do not need it, the same goes for nslcd.
