When I look at the SPEC file for freeipa-4.1.3, I see requirements

run newer FreeIPA (that is to say 4.x) on a host that hasn't been
infested by systemd (such as CentOS 6, for example)?  At the moment, I'm
speaking completely of the server components.
There are a slew of major dependencies that prevent IPA 4.x from working
in RHEL/CentOS 6. It would be quite non-trivial to try to backport
everything needed.


systemd is just one of the next generation technologies we had to deal with but it we had to deal with we took advantage of it. As Rob said 4.x depends on many component that are not portable back to RHEL/CentOS 6.

Please consider Fedora 21/RHEL 7.1/CentOS 7.1 if you want to run latest bits.
