On the client:

1) /etc/sssd/sssd.conf
2) /etc/pam.d/system-auth-ac
3) /etc/nsswitch.conf

The most interesting one is sssd_default.log but you can include all of

On the server there are all sorts of logs in the /var/log and under the
directories. Dirsrv for DS, http for apache etc. Do not have the
directory in front of me.

Make sure that the versions of the packages are latest and match each
other on both sides.
Make sure the time is in synch.
Make sure that names are resolvable if you are not using IPA with the
embedded DNS.
It makes sense to reboot machine after installing and configuring SSSD.
Test a user on the server first make sure you can authenticate and he
has a valid password.

Include the commands you used to install the server and the client in
the mail.

Good luck!
