SSSD does not apply these GPOs. SSSD has some simple Group Policy 
support, but not to the extent that Samba does. What Anderson is trying 
to accomplish used to work, but appears to be broken now. I'll need to 
look into what is causing the failure.

Actually, the SSSD team wouldn't be able to help here. Reaching out here 
was correct, I've just been away for a month and wasn't able to respond.
