My idea is to replace default "cifs_idmap_sss.so" plugin by "idmapwb.so" 
winbind plugin, in order to SSSD becomes a client of winbind.
To avoid to change nsswitch.conf :
passwd:     files sss
shadow:     files sss
group:      files sss


passwd:     files winbind
shadow:     files winbind
group:      files winbind

because I need an other access in sftp, this is using default sssd.

I tried mix copnfiguration like :
passwd:     files sss winbind  (or files winbind sss)
shadow:     files sss winbind (or files winbind sss)
group:      files sss winbind (or files winbind sss)

which gave poor result, very slow access to the share especially when 
click on security tab on windows 7.
