The OP use a setup with sssd and realmd. I never used this software and 
probably i will never use it. So i can not answer his question. By the 
way, the OP is asking what the -S parameter is for. He should not ask 
this, better read the man page, may be no time, may be too lazy.

Rowland, the mapping is done only in one direction. So
map root to administrator
map administrator to root
are diffent things and "user map" do the latter.

searching the net for realmd may give answers
