AFAIK there is no prior art in setting up MIT KDC slaves. First of all,
FreeIPA does not use stash file and stores master key in LDAP instead.

You can retrieve equivalent of stash file using following command:

$ ipa-getkeytab --retrieve --principal K/M@<REALM> -k /tmp/stash.keytab
--binddn='cn=Directory manager' --bindpw='<Directory manager password>'

*Make sure* that --retrieve option is present otherwise it will destroy your
Kerberos database.

The rest is up to your experimentation. I wish you good luck and please report
your findings back to the mailing list!
