Hi Orkhan,

Thanks for the logs.  What were their actual locations?

I'm going to try and reproduce your setup and see whether I get the
same outcome.  I have been building and installing the ports as
indicated in the forum post, and one thing I have noticed is that
there are a lot of configuration options on some of the important
ports - perhaps there was an important option that the author forgot
to mention.

It is the end of the day for me, but sssd is now installed so I
should let you know tomorrow whether I am running into the same
issues as you, or whether I find success.

(As a side node: once I get to a working setup I will create and
publish a pkg(8) repo with the needed ports built with the correct
options and make.conf variables.  This should make it easier and
certainly quicker to use FreeBSD as a FreeIPA client.)
