Configure FreeIPA Client to connect to FreeIPA Server.
[1] Add DNS entry for FreeIPA client on FreeIPA server first.
(if not using FreeIPA integrated DNS, no need to add)
# ipa dnsrecord-add [domai name] [recorde name] [record type] [record]

[root@dlp ~]#
ipa dnsrecord-add ipa.srv.world client01 --a-rec

  Record name: client01
  A record:
Install NTPd on FreeIPA Client. (NTPd is required on FreeIPA, not Chrony)
[3] Install Client tools on FreeIPA Client.
[root@client01 ~]#
dnf -y install freeipa-client oddjob-mkhomedir
[4] Setup as a FreeIPA Client.
# set DNS to refer FreeIPA Server

[root@client01 ~]#
nmcli connection modify ens3 ipv4.dns

[root@client01 ~]#
nmcli connection down ens3; nmcli connection up ens3
# setup Client with specifying FreeIPA server and Domain name

[root@client01 ~]#
ipa-client-install --server=dlp.ipa.srv.world --domain ipa.srv.world

Autodiscovery of servers for failover cannot work with this configuration.
If you proceed with the installation, services will be configured to always access the discovered 
server for all operations and will not fail over to other servers in case of failure.
Proceed with fixed values and no DNS discovery? [no]: yes
Client hostname: client01.ipa.srv.world
DNS Domain: ipa.srv.world
IPA Server: dlp.ipa.srv.world
BaseDN: dc=ipa,dc=srv,dc=world

# confirm settings and proceed with [yes]
Continue to configure the system with these values? [no]: yes
