Thanks for the information.

I know this is kinda out of topic but is it possible to use samba with ipa client from another domain?

It is probably broke both Samba and FreeIPA client.

Our servers run a different domain with FreeIPA. Samba domain is domain.com, FreeIPA domain is domain.cloud

I know FreeIPA and Samba have some common config files.
