Hello Timo,

Just to follow up, I've been running SSSD 1.12.5 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS using the AD provider without issues. For DNS the configuration was done in Network Manager (not /etc/resolv.conf as it is managed by resolvconf).  The only issue I had was ensuring the /etc/hosts hostname entry matched FQDN hostname. 

authentication working

pam_mkhomedir works

sudo works for AD users

normally it comes from DCHP meaning you don't have to touch any files on
the client (which uses network-manager by default)..

after enabling the ppa, yes

pam_oddjob_mkhomedir is not available in Ubuntu, so pam_mkhomedir
