The integration plan that I was involved with was between IPA v3 and Samba 4.
But this plan has
been deferred in favor of an alternative design using Samba 3.

Yes, this is taking too long to resolve. Unfortunately the last time I tested
was a problem in Samba 4 that was affecting other LDAP backends as well, not
to 389 DS. Samba 4 code is changing a lot so it's rather difficult for me to
keep up with
the changes especially if it happens in the core code. I plan to continue the
as soon as I get the chance.
I'll let the others respond to the following questions:
