Hi, Don't want to start flame, but my question is quite simple, is there anybody who use it in real production/commercial setup without any major issues ? don't you lack commercial support ? no issues with auditors ?
after a year/two of usage/testing/troubleshooting of freeipa/redhat ipa it seems, for me as a simple admin, to be still not very mature project, even basic configuration isn't very stable/solid to use it in real production. I started with latest freeipa on fedora with one server (VM vmware), then add other master replicas but after many issues I carefully keep one server on redhat 7 with up2date version of ipa from rhel repos, default installation setup, no replication. But still with stability issue (processes died occasionally, mostly due multiple clients removing, sometimes it dies completely with cryptic errors in journal (but sometimes no errors at all just wait for something during restart) and only fast option is restore from snaphot backups with loosing some clients). Performance is also issue, we cannot register more then 4-5 servers at once, or it will timeout (but no visible network or cpu/mem load issue). As there are no other complex solutions like IPA it's quite hard decide what to use as a replacement, but right now it's seems that we have no other option and we probably switch to simple openldap and missing functionality cover by puppet and some 2factor solution. We don't need anything special, no dns handling, no certificates, no AD connection, just simple servers/clients, users with groups and rules for access/sudo. Multimaster (with DNS SRV) solution for higher performance and reliability would be nice, but not necessary if we can keep it stable and handle more clients registration. We have tens of users/groups, hundreds servers/clients with random registration "burst" as we use it also for temp. build environments and OpenStack instances. Oficial support from RedHat is not very helpful, also they don't provide any real training for IPA, so only option is mail conference (very helpful, thanks for that) and tones of documentation/examples for variety of versions, but for such complex thing probably not enough for commercial use. Can I ask you for your opinion ?
