Due to certain limitations, such as missing Windows access control list (ACL) support and NT LAN Manager (NTLM) fallback, the System Security Services Daemon (SSSD) is not supported.

Hi Rowland -

Do you have a link for this comment?  I tried looking it up in the

might be out of date?  For example, I know nothing of any NTLM fallback.
