That is one I do not understand either, apart from the GPO option (which 
must be limited, GPO's generally do not work on Linux), everything that 
sssd does can be done by other means. I for instance use sudo rules from AD.

If you use sssd with Samba, then you need to setup two conf files (with 
a lot of duplicate info) and only use a version of Samba < 4.8.0. 
Whereas, with Samba, you only have one conf file and can use any version 
of Samba.
