1. In the option "ldap_opt_timeout", where does the

It comes from the LDAP API call to set options. I'm not sure we
necessarily want to document this, as it's pretty low-level. Really all
it does is set how long we can wait for a blocking openldap operation
(like SASL bind)
2. A question arose today about how to determine which options are
mandatory and which are not in any given SSSD config. I've since found a
few cases where "optional" is included as part of the description in the
man page. Is this the determining factor? e.g.,
- ldap_group_search_base (string)
An optional base DN to restrict group searches to a specific subtree.
- ldap_user_home_directory (string)
The LDAP attribute that contains the name of the user´s home directory.
Does this mean all users always have a home dir? (This might be true
anyway, but it might be a case of "if not /home/davido then HOMEDIR=
That's it for this email.
The manpages really aren't clear on this, and that should probably be a
doc bug itself.
Currently, the canonical way to determine this would be to look at
The third argument after the equals sign defines whether it's mandatory.
