I just joined this list because I was curious about the recent discussion that Rashard Kelly had started about whether to use FreeIPA's integrated DNS or whether to disable DNS. I'm wondering about a very similar thing. I have a bunch of Linux servers that I'd like to start manage more centrally but we have Active Directory running the network right now.
I looked at the bug attachment Petr Spacek recommended ( https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/attachment/ticket/3268/3268.v2) but one thing I didn't see there is a discussion of whether to use an entirely different domain. As this is the direction I'm inclined to I'm curious if there is some good reason not to do it. Suppose I have a company ACME Widgets which is running *acmewidgets.local* under Active Directory. Does it simplify anything if I were to run all my Linux boxes under FreeIPA under an entirely different domain such as *acme.local*? Since I have completely separate DNS records I shouldn't need to worry about any DNS integration. Will this complicate a future trust between the AD domain *acmewidgets.local *and the FreeIPA domain *acme.local* if I want to do that at some point? Is the website planning to be updated again soon? Looking through the documentation I only see old versions listed. Also, clicking the roadmaps, future version plans, etc... appear to be updated. Thanks! Patrick
