Of course you can disable the server service.
But then you have neither a supported nor a
fully functional AD/DC setup. :-)

No. It does not work for the internals of the ad/dc.
It may work in nsswitch.

And did I mention this is neither a support
nor an advocating forum for sssd?

What does "OP" mean?

Oh, and it is also unfair to always insist an
external unsupported server just works, instead
of addressing the points being discussed.

If it does not fully work, then we need to fix that.
And as you so nicely pointed out earlier yourself
(for sssd in that case...), instead of recommending
the use of an unsupported external application,
please submit a bug report at https://bugzilla.samba.org/ .
