Section Number and Name: 


Describe the issue: 

The warning states that:

Red Hat only supports running Samba as a server with the winbindd service to provide domain users and groups to the local system. Due to certain limitations, such as missing Windows access control list (ACL) support and NT LAN Manager (NTLM) fallback, the System Security Services Daemon (SSSD) is not supported.

Suggestions for improvement: 

This is clearly wrong as 'sssd' is now the proper way to bind to an AD domain (thanks to realmd).

Comment 2 Marie Hornickova 2019-10-01 08:33:18 UTC

Thank you very much for filing this bug. 

The statement that SSSD is not supported is valid only for case of integration with Samba. However, it's obvious that this should be stated explicitly. 
The documentation has been fixed in this way, and a link to a Red Hat KBase article, which provides more detailed explanation of the situation, has been added as well.

The updated documentation is now live at Red Hat Customer Portal:

Thank you!
