Hey Zeal,

When you join a FreeIPA client to a domain, as long as you put the address of 
at least one of the FreeIPA servers (if they are serving DNS) in the 
/etc/resolv.conf file, they will use DNS to find FreeIPA servers.  Specifically 
they look for _SRV records.  I think they naturally prefer hosts in the same 
subnet as them, but will talk to anything available if nothing close answers.

This applies both during the join process, and in regular operation.

This way you don’t have to worry about messing with your DNS records, FreeIPA 
handles it all for you.

Subject: [Freeipa-users] Clients with Multi Master IPA replication


I have setup a multi-master IPA server.

I was wondering for IPA Client, which URL should we add in to ?

Should we setup a DNS entry with round robin ? But then if single Master fails, 
the queries will still reach to it.

What is the ideal way to implement in such scenarios ?

Any help will be appreciated !
