I think SRV records are only part of the problem. We are using integrated BIND/DNS with our IPA servers and I'm not sure it supports views. But thanks for the suggestion. I guess we could create custom krb5.conf files in each DC and mange them with Puppet, but there are other config files (e.g. resolv.conf and ldap.conf) that would need to be managed too. Maybe there are some other IPA client config files that setup static mappings during the join process. Anyone know which ones to look at?

You would have to setup different zones to serve to each datacentre though if you know how to do that. It's not that tricky with views in bind.

We are running IPA server and client v2.2.0 on all servers and replication appears to be functioning correctly. What I have noticed is that some servers in DC1, have no connectivity to the IPA servers in DC2, and when you try connecting to them from Office1 you sometimes get a long authentication delay. I suspect this is caused by a timeout waiting for an IPA server in DC2 to respond (which it can't). So I guess my question is, is there a 'best practices' approach to this scenario? _______________________________________________ Freeipa-users mailing list Freeipafirstname.lastname@example.org https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users No virus found in this message.
