Hi JR,

Thanks a lot! It works perfectly.

The only extra thing probably goes with 2.1.3 only: I need to find and clear 
ghost RUV records for CA database, and remove it from master and all other live 
replicas as well. 

BTW, on 2.2.0 the two database backends still are separate, or merged into one?

Thanks.

--David

Been there... Done that... The bug is fixed in 2.2... It will prompt and 
prevent you from deleting a replica host if there is an agreement.

To clean up...

0. On the master replica: ipa-replica-manage del ipareplica02.example.com 
--force
-This will delete the replica agreement for the host.

1. $ ldapsearch -xLLL -D "cn=directory manager" -W -b dc=example,dc=com \
'(&(nsuniqueid=ffffffff-ffffffff-ffffffff-ffffffff)(objectclass=nstombstone))'

Look for your your nsds50ruv that matches your ghost replica.

2. Create an ldif following the directions here: 
http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Howto:CLEANRUV
Something like:

$ cat cleanup.ldif
dn: cn=replica,cn=dc\3Dexample\2Cdc\3Dcom,cn=mapping tree,cn=config
changetype: modify
replace: nsds5task
nsds5task: CLEANRUV## <- ## == The ReplicaID number for the ghost replica.

3. Run on all of the remaining replicas: ldapmodify -x -D "cn=directory 
manager" -W -f fixed.ldif
- This removes the ghost entry.

4. on the broken replica: ipa-server-install --uninstall

5. Follow the normal directions for 'installing a replica'
- on master: ipa-replica-prepare ipareplica02.example.com
- scp /path/to/ipareplica02.example.com.gpg  ipareplica02.example.com: 
ipareplica02.example.com.gpg
- on replica: ipa-replica-install  ipareplica02.example.com 
--whatever_options_you_used_previously

6. Check to make sure the server was built correctly and command work as 
expected: kinit admin, ipa user-find, ipa host-find, id admin, etc etc

7. Sigh and drink coffee
