ipa-server-install - Configure an IPA server
Configures the services needed by an IPA server. This includes setting up a Kerberos Key
Distribution Center (KDC) and a Kadmin daemon with an LDAP back-end, configuring Apache,
configuring NTP and optionally configuring and starting an LDAP-backed DNS server. By
default a dogtag-based CA will be configured to issue server certificates.
-r REALM_NAME, --realm=REALM_NAME
The Kerberos realm name for the IPA server. You will not be able to estabilish
trust with Active Directory unless the realm name is uppercased domain name.
-n DOMAIN_NAME, --domain=DOMAIN_NAME
Your DNS domain name
-p DM_PASSWORD, --ds-password=DM_PASSWORD
The password to be used by the Directory Server for the Directory Manager user
-P MASTER_PASSWORD, --master-password=MASTER_PASSWORD
The kerberos master password (normally autogenerated)
-a ADMIN_PASSWORD, --admin-password=ADMIN_PASSWORD
The password for the IPA admin user
Create home directories for users on their first login
The fully-qualified DNS name of this server. If the hostname does not match system
hostname, the system hostname will be updated accordingly to prevent service fail-
The IP address of this server. If this address does not match the address the host
resolves to and --setup-dns is not selected the installation will fail. If the
server hostname is not resolvable, a record for the hostname and IP_ADDRESS is
added to /etc/hosts.
Do not configure NTP
The starting user and group id number (default random)
The maximum user and group id number (default: idstart+199999). If set to zero, the
default value will be used.
Don't install allow_all HBAC rule. This rule lets any user from any host access any
service on any other host. It is expected that users will remove this rule before
moving to production.
Do not automatically redirect to the Web UI.
Configure OpenSSH client to trust DNS SSHFP records.
Do not configure OpenSSH client.
Do not configure OpenSSH server.
Enable debug logging when more verbose output is needed
An unattended installation that will never prompt for user input
CERTIFICATE SYSTEM OPTIONS
Generate a CSR to be signed by an external CA

The password of the Directory Server PKCS#12 file

Generate a DNS zone if it does not exist already and configure the DNS server.
This option requires that you either specify at least one DNS forwarder through the
--forwarder option or use the --no-forwarders option.
Note that you can set up a DNS at any time after the initial IPA server install by
running ipa-dns-install (see ipa-dns-install(1)).
Add a DNS forwarder to the DNS configuration. You can use this option multiple
times to specify more forwarders, but at least one must be provided, unless the
--no-forwarders option is specified.
Do not add any DNS forwarders. Root DNS servers will be used instead.
The reverse DNS zone to use
Do not create reverse DNS zone
The e-mail address of the DNS zone manager. Defaults to hostmaster@DOMAIN
