Good suggestion. This mean I should use version 3. Problem that would
have to run Fedora 17 and not happy with that option. Think I may
have to wait for 6.4 before changing current setup as I like the trust
setup more than the sync alternative

That sucks. Would have been better if it only affected IPA server.
Hopes there will not be too many dependencies that would make it
impossible of updating to SSSD 1.9.x. why is this necessary if I may
ask? Though most of the changes would be limited to the server side?
Actually, a better question is, whats the difference between sync and
trust? To me, sync mean pushing the username password pair through
the passsync while trust mean pushing the username and password
through samba4. Is this correct?

Interesting, sound scarily to go there. Thank you
