SSSD (LDAP and Kerberos) to AD

I am having trouble getting sssd to work properly with LDAP. I am using kerberos for passwords and LDAP for identification. I have everything working on Ubuntu and CENTOS5 clients not using SSSD so I know it works.

Kerberos works just fine and I can get a ticket. LDAP returns nothing, debug logs aren't helping me. I have included a copy of my config file. We are not using certs on ldap and it shouldn't be required since I am using kerberos for authentication.
