Hi, haven't a clue about IPA, never used it, but after reading the link
you provided, it looks like IPA is just used for authentication, Samba
is then used as a fileserver, with Samba clients accessing the files on
This all sounds very like using a Samba AD DC with a Samba domain joined
fileserver with Samba domain members accessing the files on the
fileserver, and this will work easily on a Ubuntu machine, unlike the
IPA setup which will require you to work out what all the red-hat
commands actually do.
