this patch updates the man page for the ipa-replica-install given the
latest changes (including the Jan's OTP patch).
1. "you cannot provide an replica file"
It's true, but wouldn't it be better to say that "you don't need to". Or
communicate that it is a good thing. Cannot sounds too negative to me.
2. Why options: --password, --admin-password are in 'BASIC OPTIONS'
section and not also in new 'ENROLLMENT OPTIONS' section together with
--principal, --keytab, etc..? Maybe 'ENROLLMENT OPTIONS' should be
before "BASIC OPTIONS" and "BASIC OPTIONS" renamed.
General ideas, not related to this patch:
If the installation fails you may need to run ipa-server-install
--uninstall and ipa-client-install before running ipa-replica-install
The installation will fail if the host you are installing the
replica on exists as a host in IPA or an existing replication agreement
exists (for example, from a previously failed installation)
I believe validators check this situation, right? So do we need to write
it in the man page.
Attaching updated patch which reflects off-line cooperation with Tomas.
New option sections were added:
DOMAIN LEVEL 1 OPTIONS
DOMAIN LEVEL 1 CLIENT ENROLLMENT OPTIONS
DOMAIN LEVEL 0 OPTIONS

+To create a replica in a domain at domain level 1, you don't have to provide a replica file, the machine only needs to be enrolled in the FreeIPA domain first. This process of turning the IPA client into a replica is also referred to as replica promotion.
+If you're starting with an existing IPA client, simply run ipa\-replica\-install to have it promoted into a replica.
+To promote a blank machine into a replica, you have two options, you can either run ipa\-client\-install in a separate step, or pass the enrollment related options to the ipa\-replica\-install (see DOMAIN LEVEL 1 CLIENT ENROLLMENT OPTIONS). In the latter case, ipa\-replica\-install will join the machine to the IPA realm automatically and will proceed with the promotion step.
