[SSSD] oddjob/mkhomedir not creating home directory for AD users

Solution Verified - Updated -


After joining RHEL to AD via SSSD, oddjob/mkhomedir fail to create home directory for AD users.

Note: The following solution requires a successful integration of RHEL to AD via SSSD (with or without realmd) and is not a troubleshooting guide on that.
The systems are configured properly, however pam_oddjob_mkhomedir is failing to create the home directories due to a lack of information on AD side.
