[Freeipa-users] No result when trying to integrate a FreeBSD client with the FreeIPA server

With help from Alexander Bokovoy I found correct log destinations:

sssd-nss-log: https://cloud.mail.ru/public/ae41ae3b44b6%2Fsssd_nss.log

These files are from my second Fedora - FreeBSD setup, they have 
different domain name, but everything else is identical.

Interestingly enough, there are lines in sssd_nss.log telling that there 
are no users or groups in the domain. But as I said, I can ssh to the 
IPA server as an IPA user.
