>is abcd.ca your windows domain ?
yes in this example

-a xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx \
--hostname=ipa1.unix.abcd.ca \
-n unix.abcd.ca \
-p xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx \
-r UNIX.ABCD.CA <http://unix.abcd.ca/> \
--subject=subject_DN  \ #Sets the base element for the subject DN of the
issued certificates. This defaults to O=realm.
--forwarder=ad_dns.abcd.ca \
--no-reverse    \ #???? Does not create a reverse DNS zone when the DNS
domain is set up.
--setup-dns \
--idmax=number  \ #???Sets the upper bound for IDs which can be assigned by
the IPA server. The default value is the ID start value plus 199999.
--idstart=10000 #???? will have to check with AD I guess

IPA server will become unix master DNS for UNIX
current unix server fqdn will remain on abcd.ca
current unix server will have dns,ntp,kdc,ldap from ipa
realm will be equal to domain name = unix.abcd.ca

When I will have resolve "getent passwd admin" issue
I believe I will be able to su - admin on any unix server
and will be able to start thinking about what next like winsync
then create ipa slave = ipa2.unix.abcd.ca
Define SRV in bind unix.abcd.ca
test all our supported Unix platform, especially AIX,
Does anyone was successful to hook their HP ilo, RHEV manager to IPA?

Will have to convince many people to achieve this set-up, but I am sure it
worth it!

Thank you! you guys Rock!
