The FreeIPA team is proud to announce version FreeIPA v3.0.0 beta 2.

It can be downloaded from

A build is available in the Fedora 18 and rawhide repositories or for Fedora 17 via the freeipa-devel repo on . To install in Fedora 17 and 18 the updates-testing repository needs to be enabled as well.

NOTE: The Fedora 18 build was submitted this morning (8/17) and has yet to hit updates-testing. The packages are also at

For additional information see the AD Trust design page and the AD Trust testing page

== Highlights since 3.0.0 beta 1 ==

* NTLM password hash is generated for existing users on first use
  of IPA cross-realm environment based on their Kerberos keys without
  requiring a password change.
* Secure identifiers compatible with Active Directory are generated
  automatically for existing users upon set up of IPA cross-realm
* Use certmonger to renew CA subsystem certificates
* Support for DNS zone transfers to non-IPA slaves
* Internal change to LDAP Distinguished Name handling to be more robust
* Better support for Internet Explorer 9 in the UI
* Allow multiple servers on client install command-line and configuring without DNS discovery.
* Translation updates

== Upgrading ==

An IPA server can be upgraded simply by installing updated rpms. The server does not need to be shut down in advance.

If you have multiple servers you may upgrade them one at a time. It is expected that all servers will be upgraded in a relatively short period (days or weeks not months). They should be able to co-exist peacefully but new features will not be available on old servers and enrolling a new client against an old server will result in the SSH keys not being uploaded.

Downgrading a server once upgraded is not supported.

Upgrading from 2.2.0 should work but has not been fully tested. Proceed with caution.

An enrolled client does not need the new packages installed unless you want to re-enroll it. SSH keys for already installed clients are not uploaded, you will have to re-enroll the client or manually upload the keys (using host-mod).
