Obsoletes Ludwig's 0006.

ipalib part of topology management

- http://www.freeipa.org/page/V4/Manage_replication_topology


New version attached:
- domainlevel_show usage changed to domainlevel_get
- updated VERSION
- added more attrs to default_attributes

Hi Petr,

the commands themselves seem to work just fine. I had encountered some quirks in the underlying topology plugin, but I will address them in a different thread in order to keep the discussion relevant to the reviewed patch.

I have some minor coomments below:

-# Last change: pvoborni - added server-find and server-show
+# Last change: pvoborni - added topology management commands

Several people were touching API in the meantime so please double-check that you have correct VERSION and regenerate API.txt

+            'nsds5replicatedattributelist?',

+ doc=_('Attributes that are not replicated to a consumer server '
+                  'during a fractional update. E.g., `(objectclass=*) '

+        ),
+        Str(
+            'nsds5replicatedattributelisttotal?',
+            cli_name='replattrstotal',
+            label=_('Attributes for total update'),
+ doc=_('Attributes that are not replicated to a consumer server '
+                  'during a total update. E.g. (objectclass=*) $ EXCLUDE '
+                  'accountlockout'),

The descriptions of these two options confused me greatly, are these attributes supposed to be replicated or not, or is there some more complex logic behind them that I failed to grasp? I am cc'ing Ludwig, he can probably explain them to us and then we can decide whether we may alter the descriptions to be less confusing.

+        Str(

+            label=_('Suffix to be managed'),
+            normalizer=lambda value: value.lower(),
+        ),
+    )

This also confused me at first, I suggest to change the label of 'iparepltopoconfroot' to something like 'LDAP suffix to be managed' or 'LDAP subtree to be managed'.


There is currently no way to rename existing topology segments/suffixes. In the case of hosts with funky FQDN's (pointing at you, ABC lab), the segment cn's created during replica installs are mearly impossible to remember and it would be nice to rename them to something more manageable. However, this is not related to core functionality and can be a subject of a separate patch once this gets pushed.

That's all from my side.
