I have two AD and would like to retain that redundancy within IPA after

I have attempted the following:

[root@ipa3-yyz-int ~]# ipa dnszone-add example.local
--name-server=srvyyzdc02.example.local --name-server=srvyyzdc01.example.local
--admin-email='systemad...@example.com' --force --forwarder=
--forwarder= --forward-policy=only --ip-address=
ipa: ERROR: invalid 'idnssoamname': Only one value is allowed

And got the following error above


Could you explain what you are trying to achieve, please?

Was trying to make sure trust remain in place even if we loose one of the 
master master AD

What version of FreeIPA do you use?

Version 3.3. Default on centos 7 with all updates applied. Not at office at the 
moment so can't post rpm precise version

Ah. I see. I misunderstood the documentation then.

So, would ipa know there are two active directories in the network even
without being explicit on the configuration? I am guessing through DNS?
IPA uses DNS SRV records to discover AD DCs to talk to. You can read
more about the mechanism Windows uses to discover services via DNS here:

If you want redundancy on Active Directory side, make sure DNS zone for
Active Directory forest contains SRV records as explained in the MS-ADTS
and these records mention all required servers.
