SSSD is the replacement for nslcd that is the default in CentOS and RHEL 7.

Module Description

This module will install, configure and manage the SSSD service, but it will not touch your nsswitch or your pam configs, that's the job for another module.

Currently this module only supports RHEL/CentOS 7, Ubuntu 14.04, Debian 8.x; however, if you specify the needed parameters yourself you can override the "unsupported os" failure.

Previously this module would install the sudo package on Debian based platforms which replaced the package sudo-ldap. It was decided that the decision of which sudo package to use was out of scope of this module. If you are seeing issues with sudo and sssd on Ubuntu 14.04 or Debian 8.x ensure you have sudo installed and not sudo-ldap.
