Will the ipa-migration handle any of these formats ? Which would be the
preferred ?

I am not sure it keeps it in clear internally anywhere. Password is
always hashed unless you explicitly set it to be cleartext in the
setting above.

Are you stating that based on knowledge of Sun Identity Manager? As far
as I understand SIM, I should be able to add new managed "resources"
(directories, databases, servers, etc) at a later point and push my
userdatabase to. For that to work, SIM will have to either hash to all
supported hashing methods (including cleartext??) or just keep a
cleartext version hidden somewhere.

I think he was referring to 389-ds. IPA migration grabs the raw userPassword attribute from the remote LDAP server to create the entry in 389-ds.

For the hash types that 389-ds supports look for passwordStorageScheme in
