I'm just starting to learn about FreeIPA, but I have exactly what you
describe in production without it. The files are shared through Samba for
AD users, and through NFS for users of the other authentication system,
that is Kerberos + OpenLDAP. Despite some technical details about SID to
UID mappings (because we have some users in both systems), it works greats.
I am guessing here, but I think there would be no problem to implement the
same thing but with FreeIPA.
