This is not possible right now. Samba 4 AD DC is missing cross-forest trust 
support which is required for interoperability with FreeIPA. There is ongoing 
work on implemented needed features in Samba and current set of patches to be 
merged upstream measured in several hundreds commits. We plan to target Samba 
4.3 timeframe.
