Its no where near a full IdM from what I can see so far but if you want to glue 
a straight forward but mixed environment together ie with MS AD and linux and 
get one password say across the lot plus some control then it looks good enough.

So if you know what your goals are and want to see if it meets them a fedora 
testbed would be good enough I suspect.

Ive gone through that, now I want 6 months of extended trial.  You need a 
decent period, we bought Oracle's IdM and its still not working in #+ years and 
well past the odd million $....

Subject: Re: [Freeipa-users] Installing on CentOS 5.X?

I did manage to get the 1.0.0 version compiled and running on CentOS 5.6, using 
the aforementioned spec file mucking.

But the suggested course would be to wait for CentOS 6.X, change to RHEL 6, or 
is Fedora really the only distribution still being targeted?

Recent builds, no.

FreeIPA 1.2 will build on Centos5 with some work (as in mucking with spec 
files).  We're using the 389-ds (1.2.4) package from Fedora.

At this juncture I would not invest the time to get this working on Centos5.

We're moving to a vendor which only supports servers with CentOS or RHEL.

I see a 2 1/2 year old document for building SRC RPMs to get an older version 
of ipa-server running: 
http://howtoforge.com/how-to-build-rhel-ipa-rpms-for-centos-5. However there 
are problems with it.

- It's missing several steps and/or or the package names have changed since 5.2.
- Some people hint that 'centos-ds' located in the testing should serve the 
same purpose, but it looks like it only supports basic LDAP administration.
- Naturally, this repo config doesn't work: 

Has anybody in the community successfully gotten a relatively recent version of 
FreeIPA installed on CentOS 5.X?

Thanks in advance,
