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

Thanks for taking time to find a solution.

1. Location of log files is /var/log/sssd , I just didn`t know that each 
section of sssd.conf file produced its own log file:


2. For the client side, here again the list of snapshots taken from my 
FreeBSD VM when I installed necessary ports, maybe these snapshots will 
provide some additional info on sssd behavior:


3. For the server side, one thing that I had to do differently when 
adding the client to the server, is I used the "--force" option, as the 
server complained about the host not having a DNS A record (I don`t run 
DNS server on IPA server).
