This option forces sss_userdel to remove the user's home directory and mail spool, even if they are not owned by the specified user.
-k,--kick

The Local Domain

In order to function correctly, a domain with “id_provider=local” must be created and the SSSD must be running.

The administrator might want to use the SSSD local users instead of traditional UNIX users in cases where the group nesting (see sss_groupadd(8)) is needed. The local users are also useful for testing and development of the SSSD without having to deploy a full remote server. The sss_user* and sss_group* tools use a local LDB storage to store users and groups.
