Keytabs are random secrets and do not need to expire as cracking them is
consider a problem out of current computational reach unlike users
passwords which use a much smaller set of values and is less randomic in

Nothing would work as they would want to use the same ports (LDAP, KDC,
kpasswd ...). No Samba4 cannot use FreeIPA's LDAP because Windows client

embedded LDAP and KDC.

The bind-dyndb-ldap plugin can be used to store any kind of data. And it
properly allows bind to set record on DNS Updates. so yes, you can, but
you may want to use a tool to make it easier to modify LDAP records
