By reading the description of the command it seems that it works only
for local accounts.
So I suspect it is not effective in any case when the users come from
LDAP and not file.

That brings the question: what is the use case and why you need it and
subsequently is there any other way to solve the problem you are trying
to solve with already existing means in SSSD?
