Most likely. /etc/sudo-ldap.conf is new with RHEL 6.3. Before that
(6.0-6.2) you had to use /etc/nslcd.conf. RHEL 5 series used a
different configuration altogether. I think that will eventually
change to as this becomes handled directly by sssd. Not a moment too
soon if you ask me. There are so many competing ways to set this up,
each with varying advantages and disadvantages. This is probably why
RH decided to just write sssd from scratch such that they could handle
all of the existing setups as well as new stuff like laptops out of
the office that need cached credentials and such.
