Thanks Alexander,
Please do not reply directly, always reply to the list.

Basically i want full administration capability given to a user to
manage the everything for certain hosts.  I was thinking of creating
hierarchal domain and subdomains structure ( with root domain being
main IPA server) and subdomains being the department/teams.  Based on
your response below it seems i just need to create a hostgroup and
assign admin role permissions to that hostgroup and add admin user to
it.  No need to create hierarchal domain like structure?
You don't need to create hierarchical domains.

You need to create additional permissions because the default one
applies to every object of a certain type.

What kind of administration do you want to achieve?

- Managing IPA objects themselves?
- Managing actual machines as in login to them, run sudo, etc?

For the former you'd need to learn how to deal with
permissions/privileges/roles and create separate
permissions/privileges/roles that look like a default one with
additional target filter based on the hostgroup membership.

For the latter you'd use HBAC rules.
