    Which kind of client? Just an LDAP client, or are you trying to use SSSD
    for integration?

    Either way SLES 10 is ancient. The repositories may not exist unless you
    have explicitly signed up for long-term (extended) support. You would
    probably be better off upgrading so that you can use the latest bits for
    integration; in particular SLES 12 has SSSD integration that is easy to
    setup, and supported, and current, and SLES 11 at least had it there even
    though it would not be the latest goodness out today.

    I presume this is not a new environment; what is its purpose, and what is
    its future?

    I've asked a contact of mine to jump in as he is an SSSD expert and a
    consultant on that topic, so he probably knows the answers, and can be
    enlisted for help directly if that is useful.

    H4xorzeel,
    As ab threatened, I now have my ear to the rail.

    SLES 10, whoa! I haven't seen that in a while and as ab mentioned unless you have Long Term Service Pack Support (LTSS) your supported repos are long expired and inaccessible.

    I did some checking and LTSS is no longer available for SLES 10:

    Service Pack Release FCS Date General Ends LTSS Ends
    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP1 18 Jun 2007 30 Nov 2008 Dec 2010
    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP2 19 May 2008 11 Apr 2010 10 Apr 2013
    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP3 12 Oct 2009 11 Oct 2011 31 Oct 2014
    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP4 12 Apr 2011 31 Jul 2013 30 Jul 2016

    On to the SSSD, it wasn't available on SLES until 11 SP3, and it didn't include the Active Directory providers (you had to use the LDAP and Kerberos providers).

    However, the Active Directory provider was made available on SLES 12.

    I'm not sure what the SLES 10 kit you currently have now is doing, but I would suggest upgrading regardless as you have no active support vectors now. If Active Directory integration is a primary driver for the future of these systems I would suggest SLES 12.
