If they are the only 'idmap config' lines you have in smb.conf and you 
want to use winbind instead of sssd, then can I refer you to my previous 
comment, go back to the Samba wiki page and click on one of the links.

You don't have to use sssd, but fedora probably expects you to do so, 
you can use winbind instead.
