Description of problem:
With authconfig, I set up:
- LDAP accounts
- KRB auth
- Homedir creation
I'd expect sssd, being the new hotness, to be enabled. It is not.

And do you have sssd package installed at all?
Please yum install sssd and then retry.
I've had sssd installed the entire time.
Can you please attach output of authconfig --test ?
OK, this is quite simple - 'krb5 realm via dns is enabled' - this is not supported by sssd currently and so sssd support is switched off and nslcd+pam_krb5 is used.
Please try disabling it via GUI or with 'authconfig --disablekrb5realmdns --update'.
That did it. Oddly, sssd seemed to work OK when I manually configured it even with krb5 realm dns.
Well of course it will work OK, if you both specify the concrete realm and enable krb5 realm by DNS. We just disable it because if you do not specify the concrete realm sssd will not be able to look it up. The GUI will prevent you from entering the realm if you enable realm by DNS checkbox.
I close this as NOTABUG.
