Could you paste output of `ipactl start` ?
Also when upgrader fails it tends to leave directory server not
accessible by changing 389 and 636 port.
It could be verified by:
$ ldapsearch -ZZ -h `hostname` -D "cn=Directory Manager" -W -s base -b
"cn=config" | grep "nsslapd-security\|nsslapd-port"
Enter LDAP Password:
If there are values other than '389' and 'on' (usually '0' and 'off')
then it might the reason why IPA doesn't start. Changing them back to
'on' and 389 might help.
But it won't say why the upgrader failed. Maybe it was a one-time glitch
or it was related to the expired certs.
The error message you got is in code which creates connection to
But if there are expired certificates. The usual recovery is to move
back time a day or two before the first certificate expires and let
certmonger to renew the certs. Optionally the renewal can be forced by
`getcert resubmit -i $certid` command.
