I did a quick scan of the AEGIS docs.
http://mysite.verizon.net/ralph.a.smith1/aegis/howto-html/working_in_teams.html#id2535810

General requirement is to have the same users on all systems.
This can be accomplished by using SSSD+ FreeIPA on Linux and AIX LDAP
client against FreeIPA if needed on AIX.
See client configuration chapter on FreeIPA Fedora docs and pages on
FreeIPA wiki.

They also mention NFS. It would be really beneficial to use NFS4 with
FreeIPA.
You can find pointers to how to do this in the presentations by Steve
Dickson at Red Hat summit for the last 2-3 years.
