Hi We'd like to test FreeIPA in our environment, but I'm having a little bit of trouble importing DNS zone files.
Running on fresh install of CentOS 7.4.1708 with FreeIPA 4.5.0-21.el7.centos.1.2 I install a vanilla IPA server from scratch with (something along these lines): ipa-server-install --mkhomedir --setup-dns --setup-adtrust --netbios-name=REALM --enable-compat --no-forwarders --realm=REALM.BLAHBLAH --domain=realm.blahblah --hostname=ds1.realm.blahblah --ip-address=10.<something> --reverse-zone=10.in-addr.arpa. --allow-zone-overlap --no-host-dns I have prepared an LDIF file for importing our reverse zone (around about 140k entries, thanks to lots of $GENERATE$ in our existing zone files). I then import the LDIF into 389ds with: ldapadd -c -d -1 -Y GSSAPI < reverse.ldif This starts off generally well, but always ends up hanging, with slapd locking up too. To cut a long story short, every few minutes there are some entries in the dirsrv access log which appear to be associated with processes related to the CA role and the AD trust role, and it's when these accesses happen that the whole thing locks up so that nothing works at all. Then dirsrv needs to be killed (-KILL) and restarted. No load, no massive CPU utilisation, the thing looks to be locked up in some kind of futex deadlock. The tunables I've found don't appear to offer any help for this. I have tried this a number of times now slicing and dicing a number of different ways: using sudo, using root, using the Directory Manager, using the admin GSSAPI credentials, 1000k entries at a time with pauses, yadda yadda. Generally this all fails eventually. On the other hand, it appears to work OK if I use the ipa dnsrecord-add command, but on a geological timescale. So, is this expected behaviour? I haven't seen anybody else on the list asking about this kind of thing - so am I doing something wrong maybe? Are there tunables I can - er - tune, at least for a bulk import phase? Or is it maybe a bug? Certainly it makes me nervous to think there might be a race condition in an insert operation which can result in deadlock for the whole directory. Thanks in advance for consideration Cheers Andy -- <https://www.treatwell.com/> Andrew Stubbs, PhD Head of Technical Operations +44 203 770 4582 treatwell.co.uk
