No im looking at this in a fairly agnostic way.....what I am looking for are 
real world scenarios that I can test potential LDAP type solutions against to 
determine the best for our needs....but you are right the sssd link in is a 


I have to prove to my management which solution is the best....I have an uphill 
struggle as they want to use AD but they also want all the bells and whistles, 
except they dont know what that I need to construct test cases 
where I can say here are (say) 5 cases, I want to get them to sign off on as 
what they want.....

So I need to use logic against their gut feel.....or I'll end up managing a 
pile of crap....

I presume you're referring to your AD users after they've been sync'ed to a IPA 

Use Host Based Group Access if the servers are running SSSD, or use old 
fashioned netgroups if
your servers does not run SSSD.
