The RHEL6/7 manuals say this:
Use a remote user who has limited permissions to create home directories and
mount the share
on the IdM server as that user. Since the IdM server runs as an httpd process,
it is possible to
use sudo or a similar program to grant limited access to the IdM server to
directories on the NFS server.
I suppose this may be one option that is worth investigating.
