Hi everyone, Happy New Year.

Was following this thread and wondering about those of us with a couple
of 2000-3000 servers to run ipa-client-install on? Any suggestions?  Was
looking around for even the basics of puppet or chef configs, but
nothing exists.

Any suggestions? One of the concerns I have is, even with puppet/chef,
you need credentials during the install to "add" the client on the
server. Security?
If you want puppet I'd start with https://github.com/purpleidea/puppet-ipa

As for enrolling a slew of systems, it depends on whether they are new
or to-be-deployed. You can generate an OTP for the clients to avoid
having to pass around admin-level credentials, for example. You can do
this for existing or new, but it can be easier on new systems as the OTP
can be passed in during kickstart.

You might want to consider Foreman which now has IPA integration for automatic provisioning and enrollment.

Sorry for a delayed response.
What version of CentOS? What version of the server?
Why manually? On CentOS you can use ipa-client-install and it will do
the work
for you.
What did you do and what did not work?
You can find some info here:

If I read correctly, you are trying to do manual configuration. This
may be a
tricky procedure and is not tested regularly. ipa-client-install is
the way to
go in most deployments as it helps you avoid the pitfalls you probably
