Creating home directory for Serverworld@srv.world.
[serverworld@srv.world@dlp ~]$   # logined
[3] If you'd like to omit domain name for AD user, configure like follows.
[root@dlp ~]#
vi /etc/sssd/sssd.conf
# line 16 : change

use_fully_qualified_names =
[root@dlp ~]#
systemctl restart sssd

[root@dlp ~]#
id Administrator

uid=214000500(administrator) gid=214000513(domain users) groups=214000513(domain users),214001104(esx admins),214000572(denied rodc password replication group),214000512(domain admins),214000518(schema admins),214000520(group policy creator owners),214000519(enterprise admins)
AD users UID/GID are assigned randomly, but if you'd like to assign fixed UID/GID, configure like follows.
Add UNIX attributes to AD accounts first, refer to here.
( To add them by PowerShell on CUI, refer to here of [4] )
This example is based on the environment AD accounts have [uidNumber/gidNumber] attributes.
Next, change SSSD settings.
[root@dlp ~]#
vi /etc/sssd/sssd.conf
# line 17 : change

ldap_id_mapping =
# add to last line

ldap_user_uid_number = uidNumber
ldap_user_gid_number = gidNumber
# clear cache and restart sssd

[root@dlp ~]#
rm -f /var/lib/sss/db/*

[root@dlp ~]#
systemctl restart sssd
[root@dlp ~]#
id Serverworld

uid=2000(serverworld) gid=100(users) groups=100(users)
