Just so you know, the version of SSSD in Lucid right now is very old
(and no longer supported upstream). The Maverick APT repositories have
SSSD 1.2.1, which is much more recent and still supported. I'd recommend
using that as your IPA client, rather than 1.0.x

First, you'll need to create a host keytab for your client. You can do
this on the server by following these instructions:

You'll need to create a service principal for
host/fully.qualified.dom...@realm.com, then generate a keytab and
transfer it over to the client.

With IPA 1.2, you'd want to set it up as an LDAP+Kerberos system. See
for an example of how to do this.

As an option, you can also add the lines:
ldap_sasl_mech = gssapi
ldap_krb5_keyrab = /path/to/keytab

This will use your kerberos keytab to encrypt communications with your
LDAP server (an optional, but nice feature).

There is no documentation currently for Ubuntu because no one has tried
to write one. If you would like to record your notes and submit them
later, we can have one of our doc people take a look and see if we can
add it to the formal documentation.
