Just wondering why would anyone want to sync freeIPA and AD - both can serve Linux systems fine, so if I already have AD, I no longer require IPA.
My 2 cents...

In the documentation it says that new accounts in AD are syncd over to freeIPA, so IPA 
sets the UID as it "arrives"?

What happens if the user is an existing one and has a UID they want to retain, 
does that transfer over and get used?

Also how do you set permissions and groups?  does the new user just go into a default group 
and then you login to freeIPA and set them up? or can you put the GIDs into AD and they get 
transferred and the user put into the "right" groups" automagically?

Looks like I can set this sort of thing "how I want" in the sync agreement?
