Yes, as I expected (below).

It is mixture of those cases. systemd is more complicated and if in 
F15 we were able to get away via SystemV emulation, in F16 dirsrv migrated 
natively to systemd, managing instances through native systemd 
mechanism (dirsrv@EXAMPLE-COM.service as a service name, for 

This new mechanism is not accessible via SystemV emulation and we had 
to migrate to systemd as well -- which means ipa-server-install 
creates proper links and edits systemd service files as needed.

In addition, systemd does not really support our model of enabling 
services, as systemd is per-host while we need to replicate service 
state to multiple replicas. Thus, we do some of enable/disable/restart 
management in ipactl.

You need to do some steps like ipa-server-install does. I'm trying to 
get them separated in a small upgrade script but something like 
following needs to be done, completely untested, may eat your kitten, 
and realm/dirsrv instance names need to be replaced before running:
#! /usr/bin/python -E
from ipaserver.install.krbinstance import update_val_in_file
from ipapython import ipautil
from ipapython import services as ipaservices

# 1. Upgrade /etc/sysconfig/dirsrv for systemd
update_key_val_in_file("/etc/sysconfig/dirsrv", "KRB5_KTNAME", 
update_key_val_in_file("/etc/sysconfig/dirsrv", "export KRB5_KTNAME", 
# 2. Upgrade /etc/sysconfig/krb5kdc for systemd
replacevars = {'KRB5REALM':"EXAMPLE.COM"}
appendvars = {}
    replacevars=replacevars, appendvars=appendvars)
# 3. Enable DS instances:
# 4. Enable FreeIPA

Note that these .enable() calls on Fedora 16 do much more than just 
'systemctl enable foo.service', they copy and modify service files, 
create symlinks and so on, all the dirty work required by systemd.
You may look at ipapython/platform/fedora16.py and systemd.py for
