as I'm not using sssd and winbind for the same authentication domain 
(rather, winbind is for a windows domain, sssd for an LDAP-based 
authentication domain, and the usernames don't overlap), my only 
solution would be to switch to sssd completely, which is definitely 
possible thanks to idmap_sss (i.e., there's interoperability between 
winbind and sssd when both go against the same domain, as not having any 
integration would break all the other Samba services when working with 

So, anyway, this comment is neither correct (RedHat explicitly states 
how to configure winbind/samba to work in tandem with sssd), and is also 
not applicable to my situation. Thanks anyway.
