Description of problem:
By definition of sudo-ldap if multiples entries match then the higher value of
sudoOrder should be chosen, instead in a default integration with ipa-client
the lowest value of sudoOrder is used, this conflicts with other servers
authenticating with the IPA server which relies only on ldap and that don't
support SSSD...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
ipa sudorule-mod SUDORULE --order=X

To check all defined orders:
ipa sudorule-find|egrep 'name|order'

Actual results:
The wrong rule is honored.

Expected results:
The rule with the high sudoOrder is selected.

Additional info:
   The sudoRole entries retrieved from the LDAP directory have no inherent
   order. The sudoOrder attribute is an integer (or floating point value for
   LDAP servers that support it) that is used to sort the matching entries.
   This allows LDAP-based sudoers entries to more closely mimic the
   behaviour of the sudoers file, where the of the entries influences the
   result. If multiple entries match, the entry with the highest sudoOrder
   attribute is chosen. This corresponds to the "last match" behavior of the
   sudoers file. If thesudoOrder attribute is not present, a value of 0 is

Here is the workaround:
- change nsswitch.conf on line sudoers from "sudoers: files sss" to "sudoers:
files ldap"
- create entries on /etc/sudo-ldap.conf file specifying with:
uri ldap://ipaserver01.subdomain.domain.com:389
bind_timelimit 30
timelimit 30
sudoers_base ou=sudoers,dc=subdomain,dc=domain,dc=com
binddn uid=sudo,cn=sysaccounts,cn=etc,dc=subdomain,dc=domain,dc=com
bindpw password

Once changing sudo to use ldap instead of sssd it start working with the
appropriated sudoOder as sudo is doing the sort instead of sssd (I guess that
sssd doesn't pass the sudoOrder to sudo instead it does the sort by it self).
The downside is that now we don't have offline cache, nor the direct
integration with ipa-client installation, and there is now a file potentially
exposing a password for accessing the ldap sudo schema defined on the IPA
