Wow, that's fairly horrifying stuff, Rob.  All of my NFS servers (and current 
ldap-auth'd clients, which are not migrated to ipa-client) are constrained to 
nfs3.  I have no plans to v4 any of my nfs infrastructure apart from one server 
eventually which will serve mostly Macs for acl richness.  At any rate:
"To use GSS-Proxy with the NFS server you need a recent enough kernel. Anything 
more recent than 3.10 should work just fine."

Servers are CentOS6 and Nexenta where they'll remain for the foreseeable future.

Surely this is anticipated somewhere in the ipa/sssd universe allowing autofs 
to act in some autonomous way as it does currently with ldap backend?

thank you,
