Side note:
You can manage AD integrated DNS from unix host easily with just 'nsupdate -g' - so theoretically (ok I undestand you have to have a proper Kerberos TGT...) IPA client could be able to autoconfigure (create all the necessary SRV records) AD DNS, too. Not sure if we even wanted that. but theoretically, it should be possible.

Hello All,
We are facing the same difficulties here with coexistence with

Whenever I run ipa-client-install

# ipa-client-install
DNS domain 'unix' is not configured for automatic KDC address lookup.
KDC address will be set to fixed value.

Discovery was successful!
Realm: UNIX
DNS Domain:
IPA Server:
BaseDN: dc=unix

is your windows domain ?

although we support specifying a realm that is not identical to the DNS
domain I strongly suggest you do not do so if you do not want to
experience some trouble and to assing to your UNIX domain it's own DNS
domain that matches the realm. If you do not do that things can still
work, but not w/o some minor annoyances.
For example discovery will fail as you find out because the DNS domain
is owned by the AD realm. You also have to make sure you properly map
realms to domains correctly in various clients.
