[Freeipa-users] A crazy idea maybe, migration to Free-IPA 4.1.

Yet with FreeIPA v4 we've got another thing to keep in mind regarding 
FreeBSD - FreeIPA integration: the cron script proposed at FreeBSD 
forums won't work.
Here's what was said in the post:

"The tricky part was gettingsudoto work with host groups. FreeIPA keeps 
host groups in netgroups, and FreeBSD's support for netgroups is 
limited. One solution would have been to enable NIS services on the 
FreeIPA server so that we could use proper netgroups on FreeBSD clients. 
We didn't like that solution, so instead we wrote a script that pulls 
all netgroup data from FreeIPA and stores it in/etc/netgroup. We run the 
script every hour viacron."

The script looks for host groups in 
'cn=hostgroups,cn=accounts,dc=<domain>', and that works with FreeIPA 
3.3. But in FreeIPA v4 host groups get in 'cn=ng,cn=compat,dc=<domain>'. 
So the script needs modification.
