Solaris would be configured via LDAP. RedHat appears to have a pretty good
guide for doing this.
Same goes for any other systems lacking sssd client or so I hope.

Hmmm. Is time for a feature request? Should this be directed to SSSD or
FreeIPA group?
override_homedir appears to have plenty of substitution options. This
wouldn't be a major change request.
For more flexibility, I think it would be nice to refer to an output of a
script for determining homedir overrides.

As there is no sssd client for Solaris, I think I may have found a
workaround via automounter as suggested by Coy Hile.
But that only solves the Solaris specific homdir paths. In any case, I'm
further today than I was yesterday. Thank you.
