No problem with sharing information about Samba here, because it is a
Samba mailing list, but sssd is different. It, like Samba, is a rapidly
moving target and to ensure you get the correct cure to a problem, you
should ask in the correct place. For sssd, this is the sssd-users
mailing list. You wouldn't ask on the Postfix mailing list about
setting up and configuring LDAP, so why ask on here about sssd ??
