I have not used FreeIPA on CentOS. As I said previously, I highly recommend
using Fedora servers as your FreeIPA servers, because it will install much
easier and you should be able to get support from the freeipa-users mailing

If you are set on using CentOS, I think you will need to use the RedHat IPA
product instead. But the only success stories that I am familiar with are
from the v1.x IPA product, which is old.
