There is a typo "either by using by "

Also this seem to be run in promote_check, so you should not mention
replica files, as promotion can only be run at domain level 1 where
replica files cannot be used.

One more thing from me: admin password should be passed to
ipa-client-install through stdin. Apply the following changes (tested
and working) to make it so:

              args.extend(["--hostname", installer.host_name])

          if installer.admin_password:
-            args.extend(["--password", installer.admin_password])
              args.extend(["--principal", installer.principal or
          if installer.keytab:
              args.extend(["--keytab", installer.keytab])

Both Simo's and Jan's suggestions make sense, thanks.

Updated patch attached.

Thank you, ACK.

It would be nice if we could update ipa-replica-install manpage and document all three different ways to set up a replica (ipa-replica-install w/ replica file in domain level 0, ipa-client-install & ipa-replica-install via promotion in domain level 1, single ipa-replica-install w/ client-specific options in domain level 1).

Especially in the latter case it was not obvious to me which options should I use to set up client and replica in one go without peeking in the source code.
