I have now managed to use a Solaris 11 system as a client to IPA Server.
su - testuser works
ssh works and console login works.
I get a delay before getting the prompt through ssh though and maybe from 
console too, probably something about autofs. Going to see if i can increase 
loginformation (Solaris newbie).
To get it to work i mainly followed Sigbjorn Lie's instructions for Solaris 10 
in earlier posts here.
I also used the /etc/pam.conf configuration example from the Solaris 10 client 
guide on Free IPA.
I stuck with the default DUAProfile for now and use a NFS4 Kerberos share for 
home directories with autofs.
Going to try the other DUAProfile too from Bug 815515 and hopefully i can get 
everything working.

And we would like to hear about this effort.
If it produces instructions we would like to put them on the wiki.
If it produces bugs we would investigate them.
