Sorry to foil your plans but FreIPa cannot be used as an LDAP backend to Samba4. We abandoned that path a few years ago as it became clear it was highly unlikely it would work. What we've done is that we change our integratioj strategy and introduced cross-realm trusts that would with Active Directory. In the future this should work also with Samba4, but Samba4 code base currently lacks support for cross-forest trusts.
