Hi Rob

And thanks for the new instructions. However, right out of the gate:

$ ipa-csreplica-manage set-renewal-master
Usage: ipa-csreplica-manage [options]

ipa-csreplica-manage: error: must provide a command [force-sync |
disconnect | list | del | connect | re-initialize]

Are there any RHEL6 specific instructions I can follow to the promised land?
