Hold on. This has, in principle, nothing to do with FreeIPA. I have a SAMBA
server that I make a NT-4 style PDC en build a trust with an AD domain. The
only thing is that the SAMBA service runs on a server that is an
IPA-client. In this setup the system is member of IPA and the SAMBA service
running on it is member of it's own NT-4 Domain. Afaik NT-4 style domains
do nothing with kerberos nor with DNS. So, no name clashes.
