our current HOWTO on connecting SSSD to an AD DC is outdated,
mostly because the page still only introduces the LDAP provider. Recently, me,
Sumit and Jeremy Agee wrote a new page that specifically advises to use
the AD provider and also use realmd for setup:
We started a new page and kept the old one around mostly because pre-1.9
versions still need the LDAP provider info.
I'd like to get some review and feedback from our community so we can
link the wiki page from the front page or the documentation section. In
addition to the lists, I also CC-ed the individual contributors to the
original page directly..I hope that's fine.
Thank you for your comments.
