I have an IPA server that i'm rebuilding. It was part of a 3 server replication. That is, three ipa replicas. Caroline0 through 2.
I have the server rebuilt, the problem is, it wasn't cleanly removed from the ipa replication in the first place, so the other two replicas still think it exists. I thought it should be a simple matter of deleting the down replica on the other two, but thats not working out. Yes, I understand that it should have been cleanly uninstalled, and that would have avoided this. Live and learn. Here's some detail. Caroline1 is the server which is to be rebuilt. [root@caroline2 PROD ~]# ipa-replica-manage list caroline0.lafayette.edu: master caroline2.lafayette.edu: master caroline1.lafayette.edu: master [root@caroline2 PROD ~]# ipa-replica-manage del caroline1.lafayette.edu 'caroline2.lafayette.edu' has no replication agreement for 'caroline1.lafayette.edu' [root@caroline2 PROD ~]# ipa host-del caroline1.lafayette.edu ipa: ERROR: invalid 'hostname': An IPA master host cannot be deleted or disabled I have tried the same commands from Caroline0, which is the first ipa server i built, thinking that maybe it was in some way authoritative in some matters because it was the first. Same deal there. I've tried simply re-adding my rebuilt caroline1, hoping it would replace the old, no luck there. The host caroline1.lafayette.edu already exists on the master server. You should remove it before proceeding: % ipa host-del caroline1.lafayette.edu I think the key here is to convince the other two ipa servers, that caroline1 is no longer a master, but I haven't found a way to do that yet. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Nathan Lager System Administrator 11 Pardee Hall Lafayette College, Easton, PA 18042 _______________________________________________ Freeipa-users mailing list Freeipaemail@example.com https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users
