As in a backup software client that can talk to the IPA instance?  Im not aware 
of one.

What I do is dump a userroot to ldif every so often....before and after I do 
patching or any significant change....I do so on at least 2 of the 3 IPA 
masters with,

/var/lib/dirsrv/scripts-ODS-VUW-AC-NZ/db2ldif.pl -D "cn=directory manager" -w - 
-n userroot -a /var/lib/dirsrv/slapd-ODS-VUW-AC-NZ/bak/userroot.`/bin/date 

I have recovered using this as well.

(oh joy!)

I also have a proven method to swap CA cert function to another server ie 
promote a replica, I actually did it 3 weeks ago!

Subject: [Freeipa-users] Backup and Restore procedures for IPA 2.2.0?

Hi all,

  Is the backup and restore procedure for IPA available now? It's rumored 
months back that some one was working on it but not sure what is the progress 
on it. Please shed a light if you have any ideas.

 I'm running the default latest 2.2.0 IPA on Redhat/Centos 6.3.
