ic ..but the full restore can success run in clean installed master with new CA overwrite?

e.g. master with CA and ldap all crashed with replication servers but data aslo crashed...can it be use as restore using the same hostname  and rebuild the replication agreements with others?

I only can found v3 . will it recover all cert ca  related ? I tried such recover in v3 it seem it broken the relationship of others agreement. or I missed the backup of some files.


you can find the doc for 4.5 in https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/7/html/linux_domain_identity_authentication_and_policy_guide/backup-restore

The full backup of a master with CA also contains the certs and the CA.


is it possible to use very old vm image plus the regular ldif backup recovery?

    If you have a full backup of a master with a CA and have saved it
    off-machine and your machine dies then you can re-install using the

    Then restore the backup. Then re-initialize all other masters (this
    should all be documented already).

    If you have only one master with a CA and it dies and you have no
    backups then you are pretty much hosed at the moment.

    IPA is so much more than just an LDIF.

    _Could_ you use an LDIF to restore the data minus the certs? Yeah,
    probably, with a whole ton of work and expertise. Would it be worth the
    trouble and would you ever fully trust that you got it 100% right?

    The best solution is to maintain multiple masters and > 1 CA. If one
    dies then you delete it and provision a new master. You can maintain the
    old name if you want.

    Or if you use VMs you can use disk snapshots to maintain backups.
