I would like to be able to use the ipa command line interface, which generally requires a
Kerberos ticket. For example to add a user to a group - I want to allow root to do
anything the admin user can do. Perhaps I’m overlooking something but simply using “su
admin” won’t work because it doesn’t kinit ticket.

Can you show examples of what you'd like to achieve. "Execute a command
as local root" sounds unrelated to IPA commands.
Can you demonstrate what you'd like to achieve without IPA in use?
Do you simply want 'sudo /some/path/to/command' without password asked?
