Hey!
Why you are going to change sssd to winbind in Zentyal 5.0 version? SSSD has more features, and have same user IDs in all servers. In multi DC approach this migration will likely break things badly!

I confirm this waring - moving from SSSD to winbind will broke unix numeric users id between multiple Zentyal servers! SSSD is more elegant solution that winbind. If you want to set winbind as default - please keep SSSD as optional.
Or maybe you can describe advantages of winbind on sssd?
