Going through the docs I'm not entirely clear whether SSSD should be
caching host lookups (if hosts has sss added in nsswitch.conf)
Should it cache like this (with negative cache timeouts etc via the
directives in [nss]) or should nscd be used alongside if host caching is
No, hosts are not supported.
Currently the SSSD supports (and caches) these maps:
* passwd (aka users)
If you need other maps to be cached, then the recommended setup is to
use nscd for those maps only. It is not recommended to use both sssd and
nscd for the same map.
