Please note that the latter is valid only for FreeIPA 3.3 and later.
FreeIPA 3.0 does not support authentication over LDAP in the compat tree.

Ok. I will definitively use Kerberos. But looking at the diagram of page
I see that SSSD in the GNU/Linux host is authenticating against both Active
Directory and FreeIPA. Does the email server that I mentioned before, have
to be configured in a similar way that SSSD in the GNU/Linux host of the
example? Or is just enough that it is configured against the FreeIPA
Kerberos and nothing else?.
You configure client (SSSD) to point to IPA but it will discover that IPA
is in trust relations and would know how to deal with tickets coming from
This is why there are two arrows. They show communication.
Ok. And what about a mail server?. We are planning to use Zimbra, and we
want that users from both FreeIPA and AD use it. Could we just configure it
to authenticate against FreeIPA Kerberos?. Or do we have to make something
Here is the howto for Zimbra/FreeIPA LDAP integration:
Note that Zimbra 8.0 does support Kerberos authentication through web
interface but instructions outlined in Appendix B of the Zimbra Admin
Guide only cover the case of using Active Directory to set up services
and keytabs. It should be relatively simple to translate that one to use
of FreeIPA; if someone does so, please extend the page on freeipa.org to
cover Kerberos details.
