ipa-csreplica-manage - Manage an IPA CS replica
ipa-csreplica-manage [OPTION]... [connect|disconnect|del|list|re-initialize|force-sync]
Manages the CA replication agreements of an IPA server.
connect [SERVER_A] <SERVER_B>
- Adds a new replication agreement between SERVER_A/localhost and SERVER_B
disconnect [SERVER_A] <SERVER_B>
- Removes a replication agreement between SERVER_A/localhost and SERVER_B
- Removes all replication agreements and data about SERVER
- Lists all the servers or the list of agreements of SERVER
- Forces a full re-initialization of the IPA CA server retrieving data from the server specified with the --from option
- Immediately flush any data to be replicated from a server specified with the --from option
The connect and disconnect options are used to manage the replication topology. When a replica is created it is only connected with the
master that created it. The connect option may be used to connect it to other existing replicas.
The disconnect option cannot be used to remove the last link of a replica. To remove a replica from the topology use the del option.
If a replica is deleted and then re-added within a short time-frame then the 389-ds instance on the master that created it should be
restarted before re-installing the replica. The master will have the old service principals cached which will cause replication to fail.
-H HOST, --host=HOST
The IPA server to manage. The default is the machine on which the command is run Not honoured by the re-initialize command.
-p DM_PASSWORD, --password=DM_PASSWORD
The Directory Manager password to use for authentication
Provide additional information
Ignore some types of errors
The server to pull the data from, used by the re-initialize and force-sync commands.
List a server's replication agreements.
# ipa-csreplica-manage list srv1.example.com
Re-initialize a replica:
# ipa-csreplica-manage re-initialize --from srv2.example.com
This will re-initialize the data on the server where you execute the command, retrieving the data from the srv2.example.com replica
Add a new replication agreement:
# ipa-csreplica-manage connect srv2.example.com srv4.example.com
Remove an existing replication agreement:
# ipa-csreplica-manage disconnect srv1.example.com srv3.example.com
Completely remove a replica:
# ipa-csreplica-manage del srv4.example.com
Using connect/disconnect you can manage the replication topology.
0 if the command was successful
1 if an error occurred
