Sorry if this is a frequently asked question, but it's not easy to find a simple answer.

* Can I use FreeIPA (v4) as a domain controller for Windows machines to join?
No.

Yes.

We are not yet at the point you could use IPA-hosted identities to login
to Windows machines joined to AD, though, regardless which AD
implementation it is.

(That is: assuming I want central AAA for both Linux boxes and Windows boxes)

Things I found:

* http://www.freeipa.org/page/About

... but it only mentions FreeIPA v2 and v3

... report on work-in-progress. It does say:

" FreeIPA Domain Controller is unlike Samba AD → Windows cannot be joined to FreeIPA". But it's not clear if this is an eventual goal, or whether it's likely to remain this way.
Eventual goal is to allow IPA-hosted identities to be used to login to
Windows machines joined to Samba AD.
