addprinc not working for normal user principals is expected, we block it
to prevent the creation of incomplete user accounts.

I think getpols is also expected to fail as we use IPA specific

However it should allow you to create krbtgt/OLD-REALM@IPA-REALM to set
up trusts until we provide an explicit command for it. This is why I
wanted you to open a bug on that.

Now that I think of it, there is an undocumented switch that will allow
you to create an arbitrary principal. This switch should NEVER be used
to create user principals or normal host principals, however it should
allow you to workaround the issue until we can fix the kadmin interface.

Use kadmin.local -x ipa-setup-override-restrictions

But please use it exclusively to create the krbtgt/REALM1@REALM2
principals and nothing else.
