Thanks Jan, Jakub
I got it working by changing the re_expression as above. I guess this would be a common
request and this above re would be good in the manual somewhere.
The parameter is documented in sssd.conf(5) manual page. Do you feel
that an example of a custom regex would be prudent?
I also discovered I need SSL / TLS for auth, so now im fixing that.
Yes, SSSD will not send passwords over unencrypted connection. Don't
hesitate to ask if you run into trouble.
