True, but IMHO the strategy FreeIPA is currently following in doing interop with crossrealm-trusts is the ony longterm way to go. Spending efforts to make FreeIPA behave like another exact-AD-clone is wasting resources; samba4 is already good in doing this special task. Yet its interesting to see how stable samba4-operation in windows-AD-environments will be since one cannot be sure the samba4-project will be notified of protocol-changes etc. Crossrealm is used in some environments and Microsoft did also help with debugging of problems. FreeIPA could be base for a linux/unix-worlds AD, bringing in all the good things about opensource software.
