I'm using freeipa 1.2.2 on a fedora 11 machine. I have successfully configured 
it for authentication for our services but the lack of replication makes it 
vulnerable for unavailability and downtime.  

It's complaining about the replica server not being able to contact the ldap 

This can be reproduced by:

1. Clean install fedora 11
2. Install the ipa packages
3. Clean install fedora 11 on a "replica" server
4. Install the ipa packages
5. ipa-replica-prepare on the freeipa server
6. ipa-replica-install on the replica

note: both machines have DNS records.

I'm not aware of any problems. What version are you using and what distribution?

Are you getting any error messages?
