Alan, thank you very much for your prompt answer, I didnt completely
understand your point.

So basically FreeNAS would be incompatible with FreeIPA? If that is the
case, my alternative would be to set up another NFS server?

Did you by any chance get this working before? The reason why I am asking
you this is just because I have followed so many guides already and I even
tried a separate Ubuntu NFS server which also didn't work.

If this approach of using FreeIPA + NFSv4 works is there any recommended
scenario that would lead to a working solution between them?

Thank you very much.
