We do not produce sssd, it is a Red-Hat product, so we do not know how 
to configure it and have not tested its use with Samba.

What I can say is this, Red-Hat is now saying that they do not support 
the use of sssd with Samba, you should use winbind, see here:


I personally do not use sssd (I used to) and have nothing against it 
except the fact that I now no longer know how to configure it.

It will be your choice whether to use it or not, but we cannot provide 
support for it, for the reasons given above.

There is also very little that sssd can do, that winbind cannot and you 
can usually find a workaround for the stuff it doesn't do.
