You might want to consider using SSSD and configure it with IPA. It is
available from EPEL. We are actively working on making SSSD and
corresponding ipa-client component to become available in RHEL 5.x and
6.x versions. But SSSD from EPEL is the solution to use at the moment.

If you are talking about the client administrative CLI for IPA v2 there
is currently no support for RHEL versions. That will become available later.
