At the end of the installation of the ipa-adtrust-install, there is a message 
along the lines of:

Add the following service records to your DNS server for DNS zone


Which has, I think, been the cause of all of my grief.

Do these SRV records in AD represent the minimum DNS set up required in Active 
Directory (my setup is a one way trust from FreeIPA to an AD over which I have 
no control, and all DNS is passed up to AD)?

These records are required so that the FreeIPA server can find the AD servers? 

Also, is it fair to infer that Default-First-Site-Name is in our case
