Hai Ralph, 

I've been reading the thread now and.. Correct me where im wrong. 

Samba only needs a build parameter to enable idmap_sss or do i need more
And when this is enabled, SSSD need to be rebuild with paramater

Because, if thats the case, im starting today on the final 4.15.0 builds
and maybe i can add it and put these in a separeted repo. 
If its not to much works, i'll think about this.
