I would like to use IPA server in heterogeneous environment with Linux servers and Windows workstations.
IPA domain would be used as a primary source of users and groups.
AD domain would be used for management of Widows hosts only (group policies etc.).
I have setup a test network with two-trust between AD and IPA domain and realized, that IPA domain sees AD users but AD domain doesn't see IPA users. Am I missing something or the two-way trust is not two-way in fact?

I set up a FreeIPA master and replica behind an elastic load balancer in AWS cloud. FreeIPA Clients will be contacting the replica and the master sever through the load balancer so the dns name used when configurting the clients is the ELB CNAME. The problem is when retreiving ldap data and during the authentication, the SSL handshake fails as the certificate sent back from the master or replica has a hostname different than the one used in the sssd ( the ELB CNAME). so the connection is terminated. There is a workaround which is the use reqcert=allow but this bring a security issue with a MITM attack. another solution i found is the use SAN. I was able to add the ELB DNS as a SAN in freeipa servers certificate. i made sure it is there by downloading the certificate and checking that the elb san exist but when testing it the same problem remain. Please help.
in order to be able to use IPA auth for Samba shares, I followed this
IPA and Samba are running on the same server, everything worked fine.
Actually, it still does, but since the upgrade from 7.4 to 7.5 (including
IPA 4.5.0->4.5.4, Samba 4.6.2->4.7.1 and sssd-1.15.2->1.60.0) file
browsing and copying is painfully slow on Mac, Windows and Linux (<10% of
the theoretical maximum). It "feels" as whether there is a timeout after
each file operation.
Nothing in the server logs. Client logs on Linux occasionally show a "CIFS
VFS: ioctl error in smb2_get_dfs_refer rc=-2". Reverting Samba back to
non-IPA auth (dedicated Samba accounts) gives expected performance (near
I'm out of ideas on how to diagnose this. Any hints?

I may be going about this in the hardest way possible, so let me stop
and roll everything back to my root need:
I have two IPA servers which manage our infrastructure. We used to have
three, but a catastrophic failure on one led to its total loss. And it
was our CA.
So now we have no CA -- is there a way to promote an existing system to
take over? I realize it may well mean distributing a new root CA cert to
everyone, but that seems less painful now than trying to set up a brand
new cluster of servers and try to port our data over to them...

We are using our own (selfsigned) root CA for our installations. We just
started to use ipa and after exploring the possibilities we want to switch
to the root CA we normally use. According to  it should be done using
these instruction . When we tray to renew the certificate we get this
[root@ipa ~]# ipa-cacert-manage renew
Importing the renewed CA certificate, please wait
CA certificate chain in /root/Certificate_Authority.pem, root.cert is
incomplete: missing certificate with subject 'CN=Example SCRL'
The ipa-cacert-manage command failed.
When we check the subject of the file, it seems to be correct to me:
[root@ipa ~]# openssl x509 -noout -subject -in /root/root.cert
subject= /CN=Example SCRL
Is there anyone who can help me with this?
I would love to change the world, but they wont give me the source code.
So we are starting the final phase of our migration and I am trying to add all the users to FreeIPA. But i'm getting an error and i'm not sure why. I've also never gotten this in the past when adding users.
[root@freeipa01 ~]# ipa user-add user.name --first=User --last=name --email user.name(a)example.com --password basicpasswordtobechangedipa: ERROR: command 'user_add' takes at most 1 argument[root@freeipa01 ~]#
I am using ipa migrate-ds to move entries from an old single master IPA instance to an IDM instance on a new environment with a new realm name. I was able to use the ipa migrate-ds command to get the users and groups moved successfully, but I am missing stuff such as my host groups and hbac and sudo rules. Are there flags to pull those over as well? For host groups I don't need to move over the hosts since I will have to register all of the boxes to the new realm anyhow to ensure they can properly fine both of the masters that I will have in the new environment. If need be I can do these by hand, but copying over these sets as is since I know they work for my environment will be preferable.
If there's a better guide for options and flags for ipa migrate-ds, please point me to it. All my searching brings me to the same pages that have a very limited and specific set of usages for this command, and in the os there isn't a man or help page for migrate-ds that I was able to find.
Hello FreeIPA Community!
My FreeIPA setup consists of two servers in master-master replication scenario. I have recently made a change to LDAP schema to not exclude krbloginfailedcount attribute from replication. I am seeing incremental updates being pushed from the server where failed login occurs, and the other freeIPA server acquires these replication updates, however it does not seem to update its krbloginfailedcount for the respective user. Hence, my goal to have user account locked out after X number of failed logins irrespective of the auth server is not successful, as each server still seems to maintain its own version of failed auth attempts. Am I doing something wrong?

Has anyone setup the self service password module?I have it setup and working on tomcat on a seperate server.
If so I have a few questions:
1) did you install this on the freeipa main server or another server?
2) Did you have allow anonymous searching for pwm? I have a user account setup for this and I was able to test auth but test account doesn't want to work. I'm not sure why. I'm still looking through the logs.
I have been following this user's suggestions on getting this working:PWM setup for FreeIPA (with LDAP and MySQL userdata store)

Obviously not using the MySQL setup but FreeIPA (99pwm.ldif and PWMacis.ldif).
I am running the 99pwm on a test environment and its not allowing me to add the 99pwm.ldif file. The dirsrv service complains that it can't read the file. But the permissions are correct.
