Yes. It will skip over anything that already exists in IPA.
thanks Rob, may I ask why process by defaults looks up only objectclass:

It is conservative but this is why it can be overridden.

Is there a reason it skips ldap+samba typical posixGroup &

last - this must most FAQ people wonder - can IPA's 389 backend be used in the same/similar fashion samba uses ldap? skipping all the kerberos bits? (samba & IPA on the same one box)
For Samba and IPA on the same box, this is configured properly with

It uses ipasam PASSDB module instead of ldapsam. This module knows IPA
LDAP schema and is capable to do more than ldapsam, but effectively you
can use resulting Samba setup in the same way as you do with ldapsam.

The configuration is:

1. Install ipa-server-trust-ad (freeipa-server-trust-ad on Fedora)
2. Run ipa-adtrust-install to configure both IPA and Samba.
3. Use 'net conf' tool to manage shares.
4. Use POSIX ACLs to set up access rights on the file system. See
for inspiration.
