see Red-Hat bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1663323

They no longer support using sssd with winbind.

If you are running sssd and winbind on the same computer, then you 
shouldn't, but it is your computer, just do not expect to get support 
from here, mainly because we do not provide sssd and do not really know 
anything about it, you need to approach the sssd-users mailing list.
