Why are we even talking about providing support for something that Samba 
does not provide ?

If I remember correctly, there used to be a Samba wikipage about using 
sssd, but it was removed because Samba could not support sssd because 
Samba does not write it.

In my opinion, the best place for information about realmd and sssd is 
in the red-hat controlled wikis.
