Thank you very much for that. Works like a charm.

How does this work though? You setup the winsync agreement between your
IPA Server and AD server using the hostname.

How does IPA know that it can trust a second DC?

Via the passsync user that you config on the Windows side. It authenticates as this user and 389-ds accepts the password change.

I imagine this is a common issue/question when trying to implement the
password sync between AD and IPA.

We have two Windows 2003 domain controllers (for redundancy) so when a
user issues a password change on the Windows side there is no primary
domain controller that it will always use for password changes.

So right now IPA is only getting 50% of the Password changes that are
done through Windows due to password changes going through both domain

Looking through the documentation IPA will only allow a password sync
agreement between 1 AD and 1 IPA server.

Is there a solution for this issue? How are people getting around this?

One winsync agreement but passsync should be installed on both DCs.
