Hello Rowland,

I've read the article mentionned below...  and I don't see how it could 
be interpreted as a 'non-recomendation'.

When you go through the documentation for RHEL AD integration, they 
mostly point to SSSD use.

In fact, that article states that the two (Winbind and SSSD) are 

SSSD needs Winbind for AD integration.   Winbind can be used alone for 
AD integration...

I have to say though, I've had success using Winbind alone on RHEL7, but 
not RHEL8.

This subject has been beaten to death on this list... So sorry for 
adding to it.   Just want to add my personal note.

We use SSSD with Winbind on all our systems (CentOS 7, 8 and Fedora).   
It's rock solid for us.

Cheers, Luc.
