#9868 Create second IPA instance in staging to more closely mirror prod
Opened a month ago by mobrien. Modified 21 days ago

Describe what you would like us to do:

In production we currently have 3 IPA servers whereas we have only 1 in staging. We should add a second instance in staging to more closely mirror prod.

This would allow for testing updates with no downtime as well as testing replication etc..

When do you need this to be done by? (YYYY/MM/DD)

There's 2 bugs you might hit, that are related to each other. :)

If the initial playbook run/replication fails, it may print out a error telling you to look at ipa-replica-manage. Please record this error so we can file a bug on it, as ipa-replica-manage is depreciated and shouldn't be used anymore.

The reason for the initial replication crash is some max packet size issue. See: https://access.redhat.com/solutions/374063
The IPA folks wanted us to try and do a tcpdump of this initial packet and see if we could help them see why/what is so large for our install?
