Ticket was cloned from Red Hat Bugzilla (product Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7): Bug 1400614
Description of problem:
When a sssd client is enrolled into a larger AD domain with multiple sites, the
client should always talk to the closest domain controllers in the local site.
When the option "ad_site" is not set in sssd.conf, sssd has to discover the
local site automatically. This is done separately for the GC and AD service.
While the site discovery for the GC service works well, it might be that the
discovery for the AD service takes a long time. A delay could be caused by
domain controllers which are not reachable and where sssd then runs into a 6s
timeout for each request.
The RfE is to remember the site from the GC service discovery also for the AD
service, so that the site needs to be discovered just once.
