/var/log/messages suggests that udev starts before sssd:
May 17 16:54:07 seadv01-db01 kernel: udev: starting version 147
May 17 16:54:09 seadv01-db01 sssd: Starting up

The problem is that, during boot, udev is not correctly executing a rule to set
user/group ownership, where the target user and group are maintained (exclusively) in
LDAP. If, after boot, I re-execute start_udev, all works as expected.
Does SSSD start before or after udev? I think it would be OK to start it before udev even
if it was before network because SSSD would pick up networking change on its own and
switch to online mode automatically.
