Actually, on further investigation, this shouldn't be an issue. Can you
confirm that you are NOT setting ldap_sasl_mech in your sssd.conf? It's
not listed in your first email, but did you maybe leave it out?

It seems you found my fault :-( I surely overlooked the meaning of the word "none" on the man page. This is it:
ldap_sasl_mech = none

The code that checks for this should be skipped if ldap_sasl_mech is
unset.

Would you mind checking your startup logs at level 6 to see what value
is being reported for ldap_sasl_mech?

Done. As already reported: ldap_sasl_mech = none

I commented that directive, restarted sssd and now I see it working and obtaining my groups from the LDAP server.
I still don't see my users and groups, but this is another story.

Thanks a lot and apologize for the noise.
Marco
