or what would be the best way?
You're looking for DNS site support. IPA doesn't currently support this. For
details see ticket https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/2008
This is not entirely correct. Sites support is necessary if you want to use
different priorities for different clients. Is it your case, Steven?
SRV records shown above should route all requests *from all clients* to
(serveripa3 or serveripa2). Serveripa1 should be used only as fallback if
neither serveripa3 nor serverip2 is available.
It is a bug (not related to sites support at all) if this doesn't work.
Steven, please tell us what is your use case.
BTW how did you test it? Did you use SSSD/"ipa"command/something else?
