Hi Chris, Thanks for the update. Pl let me know any sort of configuration backup can be taken for IPA server. Also let me know the sequence of updating the systems, as I have IPA servers and a replica server in my infrastructure.
These are virtual servers and backing up before updating.

Lakshanth, You should always have appropriate backup and restore procedures that are good for you. Having said that, I regularly update our IPA server with patches (via Katello/Foreman) without a problem. I think I even "yum update"d from IPA 4.2 to 4.4 and it just worked. cheers L. ------ "Mission Statement: To provide hope and inspiration for collective action, to build collective power, to achieve collective transformation, rooted in grief and rage but pointed towards vision and dreams." - Patrice Cullors, Black Lives Matter founder -- Manage your subscription for the Freeipa-users mailing list: https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users Go to http://freeipa.org for more info on the project
