Deployment of the SSSD using YaST in SLES 12 is much more polished and will implement a basic working configuration reliably. The remaining hurdle with the SSSD seems to be conceptual and as more administrators become educated in the SSSD, it's use cases and deployment this improves as well. SUSE continues to support YaST development for the daemon on it's platform that improves functionality and usability for administrators, SSSD sessions at conferences and updated online documentation.

These forums help as well :-) .
