yes, lets forget sssd, forever ;-)
No, you cannot mount a share from a domain member to a non-domain
member, because the domain user will not exist on the non-domain
machine, but you can connect from a non-domain member to a domain member
using a domain user & password.
If you setup a standalone server, you can connect to a share on a domain
member using domain credentials, you can probably do it the other way
round, but you would have to use credentials from the standalone server.
