This is not possible right now. Samba 4 AD DC is missing cross-forest trust support
which is required for interoperability with FreeIPA. There is ongoing work on
implemented needed features in Samba and current set of patches to be merged upstream
measured in several hundreds commits. We plan to target Samba 4.3 timeframe.
