I have recently configured IPA master and replica server. I am trying to
configure IPA users central home directories which means when a user
authenticate through IPA on any client, will have same home directory. To
achieve this goal, I have configured a NFS server, joined and configured nfs
I have Rhel 7 and CentOS 7 clients. Rhel clients are working as expected, when
IPA users are authenticated on Rhel clients they can get home directory from
nfs server. df -h shows any entry of nfs user home directory mounted.
When a client is Centos 7, users are able to authenticated from IPA and can
login but can't get home directory from NFS server. I can manually mount a dir
with nfs server which verifies communication is working between centos client
All neccesary ports are open and centos configurations are pretty much same as
Rhel clients. I even disabled selinux, but no luck. Has anyone experienced same
Another question: At the moment, there is single nfs serve which is single
point of failure, what best method I can use for HA of user home directories?
