As Lukáš has noted, the fedora/sssd container exists which allows
you to execute ipa-client-install (or realm join) and then run sssd:


The only outstanding issue is that sudo rules currently do not
work on Fedora Atomic (but work on RHEL Atomic).

The main reason against the FreeIPA server in a container, provided
you use


would be the lack of SELinux isolation of the individual components,
plus expectation that we sometimes see that containers are like
virtual machines (and people treat them like those especially from
security point of view) when they are not.
