Thanks, David. So, a couple of things, given that I know for a fact that 
Windows admins expect to be able to use security groups to restrict host 

I reiterate that sssd is consequently absolutely necessary in an 
enterprise context when using Samba, particularly with Windows DCs, and 
it would be helpful to have a Wiki page discussing such an integration. 
I'm no longer working with Samba in this context (domain users >> people 
who should have access to file server), or I would do it myself.

It would be super useful to have a Wiki page detailing exactly what 
domain group policy features have been implemented. This would help 
prevent situations like the one I went through a few months ago where I 
was blind-sided by not being able to use domain GPOs for access restriction.
