The title says it all. Every time I boot my Fedora 14 I get this warning message when I get to the desktop. Any advice?

If you don't need it on then
su -c 'chkconfig sssd off'

OK thanks I think. Not sure I'm much the wiser but can't see that I need it

SSSD is used to manage access to a local machine when the identities are provided by a centralized LDAP server. SSSD would be enabled by default if you'd set up LDAP for users in authconfig/system-config-auth.
Otherwise, it shouldn't automatically be trying to run in a default install. If a clean install of Fedora is trying to start SSSD, please file a bug in Bugzilla.

Ah right, thanks. Actually I think I probably set it to start by accident. I was looking through the services I needed and I'm guessing that I read it as sshd. Anyway, many thanks. I'm a long time Debian user but it's a few years since I've touched Fedora so just getting to grips with the differences
