+1 also please note that reversing the order of files and sss must be
handled with extreme care. For instance, if someone was smart enough to
name a user in IPA with the same name as some daemon user, then you'd
effectivelly shadow the daemon account from the machine..
Luckily sssd explicitly doesn't handle root, so even if you reversed the
order of files and sss, the sss nsswitch module would just punt on any
requests for root.
