Hi Tamas I think the general advice is to replicate rather than to migrate. I am sure Martin K will jump in on this.
However some weeks ago, when doing a very similar move to yours, we chose to migrate (we were misled by some very old FreeIPA docus that have since been archived). In our case passwords were successfully migrated, so the users were able to use the same user / password combo as before. I will see if I can dig out the migrate command we used at the time.

Sent by: freeipa-users-boun...@redhat.com hi, Currently there are CentOS 6.5 servers and IPA 3.0. The goal is migrating users to CentOS 7.1 and IPA 4.1. This is the command I use: $ ipa migrate-ds ldap://ipa11 --user-container=cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=foo --group-container=cn=groups,cn=accounts,dc=foo --base-dn=dc=foo --with-compat < ~/.pw.manager Users are migrated successfully but password must be reset, otherwise they cannot logon. Any idea, what's going on? I also have a bonus question. How can I migrate the cn=sysaccounts,cn=etc,dc=cxn tree? Do I need to export/import it as ldif and that's all?
