Yes....Last time we lost a switch at DR which is 5km away on dark fibre...the 
002 replica is at DR.

I suspect this is a SSSD issue.

Is is possible that one of your replicas might have been unreachable at
some point? We've had a bug where the SSSD would attempt to get a TGT
from a replica rather than master and if that failed b/c the replica was
down, the whole SSSD went offline.

Anyhow, I think that SSSD domain logs would tell us more.
