1. As per current design (IPA 4.2) we can prepare replica server file
on an existing replica server using "ipa-replica-prepare" and use this
file to setup new replica host, how can we achieve this behavior under
this new feature when MASTER domain level is set to 1.?
You can't. The whole point of replica installation by promotion is to
eliminate the need to lug around files to set up new replicas.
In domain level 1 the ipa-replica-prepare command is disabled and
running it raises an error (See test case 2 in
http://www.freeipa.org/page/V4/Replica_Promotion/Test_plan). Also there
is no MASTER domain level, the domain level is uniform across the whole
Topology segments describe replication agreements between *two*
endpoints (think about them as graph edges connecting two nodes). So you
set up a segment between replica1 and replica2. To connect third replica
to the topology, you have to create new segment connecting either
replica1 and replica3, or replica2 and replica3.
2. How will the "ipa topologysegment-add" work for a 3 repilca scenario?
Since, under domain level 1 it uses "rightnode" and "leftnode" to form a
new segment. Can I add 3rd replica to this already created "Newsegment"
or we need to have it created separately? How will it work?
I'm not quite sure about point 3 either. I guess that you have to
reenroll the replica after restore, but maybe someone more knowledgeable
about the feature will chime in.
We can add New Test Scenarios as well:
1. Add scenario for domain level details at UI. Since it talks of
reflecting the domain level changes at UI.
2. Add scenario to validate once domain level of master is raised to 1,
after that it cannot be lowered.
3. Add scenario for "ipa-restore" using master and replica topology , so
as to identify the effect of restoration on replica by using "ipa
topologysegment-find realm" command.( What will be the expected behavior
in this case)
Let me know.
