I'm attempting to migrate my IDM server from RHEL6 to RHEL7. Ie. from
IPA 3 to IPA 4. My IPA 3 installation does not manage DNS - but other
than that, it's a very basic installation on a very small set of servers
(less than 50).

To start the migration I run
# ipa-replica-prepare ipa.peterlarsen.org

(ipa is the name of the new RHEL7 server). My intention is to setup a
replica on that server, and once fully established remove the old

I'm prompted for the dirsrv password and once entered it's accepted. It
also gets accepted if I use the --password=blabla option. However, the
process doesn't get far and terminates with:

ipa-replica-prepare ipa.peterlarsen.org

Preparing replica for ipa.peterlarsen.org from idm.peterlarsen.org

    raise errors.ACIError(info="%s %s" % (info, desc))


I'm not sure the "invalid credentials" error message can be trusted (as
it does do a successful bind initially). Here's the log from the PKI-IPA:

Looks more like a structural issue?
