Freeipa vs Samba4 : will Redhat dump freeipa in favor of Samba4?


Would like to know your opinion about RHEL's IPA product.
With latest release of SAMBA software package, 2 software products can provide nearly same function in regards authentication. DO you think REHL will dump freeipa in favor of SAMBA or will stick with it as centralized authentication provider?

Well the goals are somewhat different. I think they will stick with freeipa, in the long run they want it to be able to do auditing, currently you can set up more things than just centralized authentication with freeipa. The scope of the two programmes in a certain way do overlap in some areas, but they are geared towards very different purposes overall.
