left realm, joined realm as user1, added debug_level and ad_server to sssd.conf (it seems to hang when it runs into a dead ad_server), restarted nssd.

I ran an id on user1, it returned data. No data for user2. 

I then cleared cache using: sss_cache -E, id'ed user1 again and data was returned. Still no data for user2. 

domains =
default_domain_suffix =
config_file_version = 2
services = nss, pam

debug_level = 9
ad_domain =
krb5_realm = EXAMPLE.COM
realmd_tags = manages-system joined-with-samba
cache_credentials = True
id_provider = ad
krb5_store_password_if_offline = True
default_shell = /bin/bash
ldap_id_mapping = True
use_fully_qualified_names = True
fallback_homedir = /home/%u@%d
access_provider = ad

sssd_nss is ~700 of the following lines:
(Thu Aug 31 09:21:05 2017) [sssd[nss]] [sss_dp_get_reply] (0x0010): The Data Provider returned an error [org.freedesktop.sssd.Error.DataProvider.Offline] (attached).

Hello list,
  I've configured sssd on Centos 7 with the very basics. I'm able to id my own user account, which was used to join the domain (via realm), but unable to id any other account.
  Does anything make sense about this? I should mention this is a very large  (50,000+) corporate AD.



please provide sssd domain and sssd_nss logs with debug_level = 9
as well as your SSSD configuration file.
