I only recently stumbled upon FreeIPA and am salivating at the mouth (sorry
for the gross mental picture!) in excitement.

Twice now, I've tried to install IPA server on a Centos 6.4 VPS at
only to helplessly watch the install process hang at some point after
executing sudo ipa-server-install.

My 'Google skillz' are failing me in that I've only been able to find these
tutorials (neither of which, unfortunately, address the issue I'm


1.) Does anyone know of any good documentation out there on deploying IPA
server on CentOS (or, is it not advisable to do such a thing)?

2.) Is it possible to run a production server with IPA server on Ubuntu?

Since stumbling onto FreeIPA, I've finally started looking into Fedora.

encountered seems to recommend CentOS over Fedora for (RedHat-alternative)
production servers.

3.) Any reason why a production server could not have IPA server on Fedora?
