My user have a gid value of 300, and users with this gid are silently
ignored by sssd. I tried to find some configuration setting to

sssd.conf. I did on the other hand find the min_id value. But I
would really like to keep the uid limit at 1000, while I would like to
lower the gid limit to 1. Is this possible?
No, this is not possible. Using network users and groups with IDs less
than 1000 is a very bad idea, because they can conflict with system
accounts on the client.
Or do you have network accounts that are associated with system-local
groups? In that case, you should really move those groups to the LDAP
server and update your clients. It's a bad central configuration that
relies on client machines all having the same groups.
