Thanks Dmitri! That at least tells me to stop attempting things that are going to not work. I will look into the automember info. Currently I don't think that will work for us since we using IPA essentially as just LDAP and not using the IPA client (but using SSSD on the hosts) and I don't register hosts directly in IPA. We did not really want / need that extra overhead but did like the other integrated components of IPA.
Thanks so much for the info.
