Unless you want to have the client use Kerberos to protect your ldap
connection from host to IPA you do not need to have the host principal
in the server.
For not RHEL machines or machines that do not use SSSD you need to
configure only PAM and NSS.
For PAM you can use kerberos or ldap.
For NSS you need to use ldap.
Effectively you need to manually do what ipa-client on rhel 5.6 does for
It is covered in the Freeipa v1 client config guides. Nothing changed there.

Hope this helps.
