We have a mix of Centos 6 and Centos 7 machines which we would like to manage with FreeIPA.

I remember that setting up freeipa on Centos 6 can be a bit tricky although I found this method which works.


I imagine the Centos 7 client setup is somewhat more streamlined.

Assuming we install freeipa on Centos 7, will our centos 6 clients have any problem connection? Any caveats which we should be aware of?



Clients should work without any issues.

The only thing to keep in mind is that IPA's remote management CLI should be used from the systems of the same versions as the server. In other words the ipa-admintools package that contains CLI would not work from CentOS 6 system against CentOS 7 system. But would work from 7 to 7.
