I'm managing a workstation where user home directories are mounted

override home directory string from LDAP into some local directory

It seems that whenever I add/remove the "override_homedir" to/from
sssd.conf, I must restart the sssd daemon.
I wonder if I can ask sssd daemon to dynamically reload without a restart?
Or do you have better solution for this scenario?
I would rather explore autofs so each individual home dir is mounted
dynamically, and change autofs to mount a tmpfs instead if the nfs
server is down.
This way you do not change the directory where user files are but just
