While you can make it sort of work, it will be a lot more difficulty, and will 
never work quite how you want. You would be better off using Active Directory 
or Samba4, and creating trusts between the two domains.

Hi Dimitri, 


Thanks for your response but I'm a little bit confused. Indeed, some users tell 
me that it's possible to join an IPA domain from a windows workstation and you 
say this is not possible. 


I don't have an AD server, I want to configure IPA to act like an AD. My 
network contains Windows/Linux workstations and I want to centrally manage

If you setup trusts between IPA and AD then yes.
If not then you need to ssh from the system that belongs to the API domain.
IPA does not support Windows systems to be joined to IPA domain. But you can 
configure kerberos for Windows and use local Windows accounts. There are some 
HowTos on the wiki about it.
Alternatively you join Linux systems to AD and use it as your central 
authentication server then SSO would also work but you will loose ability to 
manage your Linux related policies.

Trusts is probably the best for you but there will be dragons.

to enable SSO with SSH from a ipa workstation, just edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config 
and make sure the line below is set to yes
"GSSAPIAuthentication yes"

If you've just made the change, it won't take effect until SSH is restarted. So 
do the usual service sshd restart.
