Hi, I have updated http://www.freeipa.org/page/V4/Migrating_existing_environments_to_Trust with the comments from the latest round. The changes can be see at http://www.freeipa.org/index.php?title=V4%2FMigrating_existing_environments_to_Trust&diff=8696&oldid=8181 I think most aspects are clear now.
I think only one decision is needed about how to manage the assignment of a host to a view. In the original draft host groups were used to connect hosts to views. There is only the drawback that a host can only have one view but can belong to multiple host groups. So chances are that when we follow the host-group memberships of a single host to the views we end with two or even more views. To get around this Alexander suggested to add a new single-value LDAP attribute to the host objects which holds the DN of a view. With this all ambiguity is gone. The drawback here is that now at least in the WebUI each host which should not see the default view must be added individually to a view. (On the command line for-loops from the shell can be used). I would prefer Alexander's suggestion. Because although on the first look the host-group approach sounds more comfortable from the management point of view I think the difference is not that large when looking a bit more into the details. It was already recommended to not use host-groups already used for other purposes like HBAC or sudo for views management to avoid unexpected changes of POSIX IDs when those groups are modified for other purposes. For the host-groups which are exclusively used for view management we can add DS plugin which make sure that a host is always only a member of one of such groups to avoid ambiguity. Initially adding hosts to a host-groups is a bit easier due to the host-group add-dialog of the WebUI but later on each new host which should not have the default view has to be added to the related host group as well. It might be even a bit more effort than with Alexander's suggestion because a host cannot be added to a group when it is created, so a host has to be created first and then can be added to a group. As a summary I think there are no real benefits using host-groups for management compared to assigning the view directly to the host. Other opinions, comments and suggestions are welcome. bye, Sumit _______________________________________________ Freeipa-devel mailing list Freeipafirstname.lastname@example.org https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-devel
