The problem I see is simple - not being able to add additional

What I meant to say is - Is the workaround of setting replication
first, then doing migration, acceptable?

Well - here is the problem and solution:

Fails every time:

Install master, enable migration, migrate existing LDAP
config/users, setup replication, fails.

Works every time:

Install master, setup replication, enable migration, migrate
existing LDAP config/users, works perfectly.

So -- a problem with migration settings??
Could be.  Is it a problem if the only way you can successfully set
things up is to do the latter procedure?
Would be nice to test this scenario at some point and reproduce it.
I do not think the workaround is acceptable. One should be able to add
the replicas after migration.
Is this a timing issue? I mean can you add replica next day for
example or never?
If you never can add a replica after migration it is a problem and we
should fix it. If you can't just for s short period of time then we
should probably file a ticket and process it later.

Sadly - no - I waited 24 hours after the migration from OpenLDAP to IPA
and still could not do it.

Going to try something else. Since the bug still exists migrating to 4.x
directly - going to migrate to 3.3.5, THEN upgrade to 4.0.1 and then try
the replica addition. I will let you know what happens.
Honestly, I find it hard to believe that this is related to migration.
All migration does is pull over users and groups over LDAP. Whether you
set up the agreement before or after, it is going to do a full database
dump. The only difference is that after it will get more data.


Well may be the data is so big that the replication gets stuck?
May be there is some huge group membership issue or something like.
Do you have a huge group? Multiples of huge groups? Do you use auto membership?
