As SSSD seems to work with others tools (SSH, SMTP auth...), as the OP
doesn't described his error very clearly, I do think you can't say the
error is SSSD for sure. You can expect the error is from SSSD, you can even
be sure of that. But as this error is not clear, how dare be so sure?

For 'we do not know, ask sssd' I'm not included in that "we". When I don't
know, most generally I try to learn.
