Ubuntu Precise has sssd-1.8.2
I use ' msktutil' - a very nice utility for joining AD domain.
It is easy to join a bunch of computers and renew expired passwds with it.
Realmd project looks interessant too.

At this moment everything seems to be a challenge - as I am exclusive (ok ;-) almost
exclusive... ) hard core Linux user.
As our Windows team is not ready with AD schema for Unix - my first
exercise could be -get login/ssh authenticate (and change passwd)
against AD -get uid/gid/auto.home map/shell from existing Linux NIS
Is my plan realistic ?
I'm not sure what version of the SSSD does Ubuntu Precise ship, but I would recommend
using 1.9.x and the AD provider. You might also want to look into the realmd project, that
could simplify joining an AD domain for you.
