Ah. Ok, the goal is to be able to instantiate additional replicas. However, when I try, I get: [13/Oct/2010:10:04:24 -0400] - import userRoot: Import failed. [13/Oct/2010:10:04:24 -0400] - process_bulk_import_op: NULL backend I am told this could be fixed with 389-ds-base, though I cannot be certain. If I can resolve the issue of creating additional replicas, there would not necessarily be a compelling reason for me to update to 389-ds-base, and I would happily stay running fedora-ds-base-1.1.3 Kambiz > > >> Thanks >> Kambiz >> >> >> > > -- "All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent." --Thomas Jefferson _______________________________________________ Freeipa-users mailing list Freeipafirstname.lastname@example.org https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users
