FreeIPA installer doesn't touch 'default' domain section at all. It always operates on the section named 'domain/<domain name>'.

Actually, that does not seem what I experience.

On RHEL 6.7 and RHEL 7.2, I've tried to start with sssd.conf

    autofs_provider = ldap
    cache_credentials = True
    ldap_search_base = dc=old,dc=domain
    id_provider = ldap

I tried ipa-server-install and I tried ipa-client-install. In both cases, the resulting sssd.conf had the [domain/default] section removed. So something in the process seems to care about that section -- maybe not the installer, maybe authconfig or something else.
If sssd.conf exists, IPA installer (ipa-client-install) will back the file up. If there is a clash in config, it will start a fresh because
you anyway have a backup copy.

On the other hand, I was not able to reproduce the chaneg to the content of the domain/default section that lejeczek reports. I guess we will need more detailed steps to reproduce, including the exact
original sssd.conf and versions of relevant packages.
I suspect somebody ran authconfig separately to configure some options
and it ruined sssd.conf.
yes, I've asked around and it's quite probably someone before tried/used non-IPA kerberos before. One thing to me looks like a certain - if krb5_realm & & krb5_server (or at least krb5_realm) installer (in my case left it there in /default) I guess a quick test would be to put krb5_realm is sssd.conf default and try, I'll do that once I've set up some VMs. Also my ldap_search_base = dc=old,dc=domain was different from FQDN/realm which during, for the installation was new.quite.different.domain.local - in case it mattered. Most important is that both params are now in the newly (IPA created) section, thought just yet I did notice anything, it seemed ok before and it does so now.
many thanks getns
