    The command 'ipa user-add --help' succeeds giving me the correct
    help message. But when I try to add the user it fails:

        ipa user-add foo --to-stage --first=foo --last=foo
        ipa: ERROR: Unknown option: tostage

    This seems to occur because the frontend find this is a 'remaining'
    option.. but what does it means ?
    I tried to add the new options as internal options, or with
    different names, but it gives the same results.
    I know it is a very novice question, but I have really no idea I
    should fix it. Anyone know what I am missing ?


Adding these options works for me; I think the most likely reason is you're still using the old version. Did you install the changed file properly? If you're just copying the .py file to /usr/lib, remember to restart Apache.

Hi Petr,

   Thanks for the info.
   I am using the cli, not the web interface and I installed just
   copying user.py to
   I believe I am using the new version as the '--help' option shows
   the new added options '--to-stage' and '--from-stage'.
   Did you succeed to add a user with something like: ipa user-add foo
   --to-stage --first=foo --last=foo ?

   may be something bad with my deployment I am using freeipa 3.3. Did
   you test on master ?
