I've gotten pretty unhappy with "realmd" and "sssd". They try to hide

>> any of the many steps are even slightly worn, it becomes erratic or
>> fails.
Update: In fact i succeeded in reseting user password from a linux 
workstation with kpasswd through pam_sssd.
At the beginning I thought we were prompted directly for new password, 
but we had to first type in the old one before choosing a new one.
