On an ipa-client, our customer wants to implement login to a
custom made service using the poco c++ library. There's something
about ldap authenticators on this page:
The customer already hat this implemented with a non-ipa LDAP
setup, but we don't have access to the source code.
1) Is there any experience implementing ldap based authentication
in an ipa ecosystem using poco? Examples, instructions, anything?
2) Is there some code example or even example program for ldap
authentication without poco, in any language ( But C/C++

Several months ago we set up two IPA servers for a separate department.
We also set up a trust to AD. Then the project went on hold. Today I was
told that they want to continue using IPA.
The IPA servers are using CentOS 7.x. Regarding the trust setup, would
it work to add two OL 8.1 servers and remove the old CentOS servers
afterwards? Or is there a better way to do that?
I have a IPA setup, in trust with active directory.
I noticed a strange behaviour in HBAC.
I have a group ("extgroup"), defined as external, containing an active
directory user ("user(a)ad.dom.ain").
I defined a HBAC rule ("allow_AD_ssh") to permit ssh to a host to users
belonging to "extgroup", but the HBAC test (performed with
"user(a)ad.dom.ain") fails. I'm sure the cause is the "Who" section of the
HBAC rule (if I leave "Anyone" it works). So the HBAC is defined as:
WHO: User group "extgroup"
ACCESSING: host I want to give access to
I was pretty sure it was a incompatibility of HBAC rules with external user.
But if I define a standard (POSIX) group (let say "intgroup"), make
"extgroup" member of "intgroup" and use "intgroup" in the definition of
the (section "who" of) HBAC rule, it works like a charm.
Why direct use of external group is not working? Is it a bug? Or is
there a reason I cannot see?
I have successfully deployed my own Freeipa server in my local network. Now I want to configure it as a local domain for our LAN.
All the computers in our LAN has windows installed as OS. Is it possible? How to configure.
Now, my Freeipa server DNS is "example.com". When I try to change the domain of the windows computer I get error.
I'd like to ask of is there any workaround for issuing certificates that will have Common Name longer that 64 characters?
For FREEIPA version less than 4.8.0 which is designated for RHEL 8, when we will have to stay with current version of RHEL 7.
Is there a way to configure centralized Authentication and Authorization system for Gmail and OpenVPN users? For example, if any new employee joins I grant Gmail and OpenVPN service access. I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks in Advance.
Hello, I'm currently configuring freeipa. When I run the command "ipa-server-install", I got these errors:
Checking DNS domain biotechfarms.net., please wait ...
ipapython.admintool: ERROR DNS zone biotechfarms.net. already exists in DNS and is handled by server(s): kiki.ns.cloudflare.com., dane.ns.cloudflare.com.
ipapython.admintool: ERROR The ipa-server-install command failed. See /var/log/ipaserver-install.log for more information
My boss has this domain "biotechfarms.net" also in cloudflare.
I'm trying to issue some certificates via certmonger and I'm missing a
The situation is thus:
I have a small docker swarm of containers which access storage volumes on a
IPA-joined storage server (xstorage1 - Ubuntu 18.04) via NFS, stored on a
Some of these containers, in this case a WiFi controller can ingest
certificates dropped into their volumes.
I want to use the storage server to request and drop the certificate files
for the controller (in this case called omada) directly into the docker
volume for the container, so the storage server will manage renewals and
the container just sees the cert files as normal.
On xstorage1 I used the following process to create the host, service and
request the certificate:
ipa host-add omada.i.xrs444.net
ipa service-add HTTP://omada.i.xrs444.net
ipa service-add-host --hosts xstorage1.i.xrs444.netHTTP://omada.i.xrs444.net
ipa-getcert request -f /nasstore/containers/omada-data/cert.crt -k
/nasstore/containers/omada-data/tls.key -r -K HTTP/
omada.i.xrs444.net(a)I.XRS444.NET -N 'CN=omada.i.xrs444.net,O=I.XRS444.NET'
-D omada.i.xrs444.net -C "/usr/local/bin/catcerts.sh
(The -C is calling a script to concatenate the cert change into one file)
This appears to process without error, but when I run ipa-getcert list I
see the following error:
Request ID '20201019194610':
ca-error: Server at https://xipa1.i.xrs444.net/ipa/xml denied our request,
giving up: 2100 (RPC failed at server. Insufficient access: Insufficient
'add' privilege to add the entry 'krbprincipalname=HTTP/
In the GUI of xipa1 (IPA Server) I can see the host and service, with
xstorage1 listed in the 'managed by' tab for both.
I tried from another host with the same results.
What have I missed? I'm sure I've done this before a while back, but I
can't recall how I did it. Looking through guides online I can't see a step
I'm generating certificates for a bunch of not-enrolled,
not-certmonger-feasible services (our printer, for example) and I'd like a
little longer life cycle than the standard two years. I can't for the life
of me figure out where I can set that.
Thanks in advance.
