ipa-ldap-updater - Update the IPA LDAP configuration
ipa-ldap-updater [options] input_file(s) ipa-ldap-updater [options]
ipa-ldap-updater is used to apply updates to the IPA LDAP server when the IPA packages are
being updated. It is not intended to be executed by end-users.
When run with no file arguments, ipa-ldap-updater will process all files with the exten-
sion .update in /usr/share/ipa/updates.
An update file describes an LDAP entry and a set of operations to be performed on that
entry. It can be used to add new entries or modify existing entries.
Blank lines and lines beginning with # are ignored.
There are 7 keywords:
* default: the starting value
* add: add a value (or values) to an attribute
* remove: remove a value (or values) from an attribute
* only: set an attribute to this
* onlyifexist: set an attribute to this only if the entry exists
* deleteentry: remove the entry
* replace: replace an existing value, format is old: new
* addifnew: add a new attribute and value only if the attribute doesn't already exist.
Only works with single-value attributes.
* addifexist: add a new attribute and value only if the entry exists. This is used to
update optional entries.
Values is a comma-separated field so multi-values may be added at one time. Double or sin-
gle quotes may be put around individual values that contain embedded commas.
The difference between the default and add keywords is if the DN of the entry exists then
default is ignored. So for updating something like schema, which will be under cn=schema,
you must always use add (because cn=schema is guaranteed to exist). It will not re-add the
same information again and again.
It alsos provide some things that can be templated such as architecture (for plugin
paths), realm and domain name.
The available template variables are:
* $REALM - the kerberos realm (EXAMPLE.COM)
* $FQDN - the fully-qualified domain name of the IPA server being updated (ipa.exam-
* $DOMAIN - the domain name (example.com)
* $SUFFIX - the IPA LDAP suffix (dc=example,dc=com)
* $ESCAPED_SUFFIX - the ldap-escaped IPA LDAP suffix
* $LIBARCH - set to 64 on x86_64 systems to be used for plugin paths
* $TIME - an integer representation of current time
A few rules:
1. Only one rule per line
2. Each line stands alone (e.g. an only followed by an only results in the last only
3. adding a value that exists is ok. The request is ignored, duplicate values are not
4. removing a value that doesn't exist is ok. It is simply ignored.
5. If a DN doesn't exist it is created from the 'default' entry and all updates are
6. If a DN does exist the default values are skipped
7. Only the first rule on a line is respected
Adds and updates are applied from shortest to longest length of DN. Deletes are done from
longest to shortest.
Enable debug logging when more verbose output is needed
Run through the update without changing anything. If changes are available then the
command returns 2. If no updates are available it returns 0.
