Do I understand it correctly that you have 2 completely separated
FreeIPA servers. I.e. they are not replicas of each other created by
ipa-replica-install. And you would like to transfer data from one to
If you want to transfer only users and groups then `ipa migrate-ds`
command might be an option - but it has limitation that it doesn't
create user private groups.
If you want to transfer more data then you would need to load the data
and add it via FreeIPA API or CLI becaise FreeIPA-FreeIPA migration is
not an implemented feature. See, old RFE:
More details in https://www.freeipa.org/page/Howto/Migration
But if you want to create only IPA replica then follow Flo's suggestions.

can you detail the exact steps you performed, and provide logs related to
the failure when starting the directory server?
You may want to have a look at our Troubleshooting page , and check which
files to provide for debugging .
