NAME

ipa-ca-install - Install a CA on a server

SYNOPSIS

ipa-ca-install [OPTION]...

DESCRIPTION

Adds a CA as an IPA-managed service. This requires that the IPA server is already installed and configured.
ipa-ca-install can be used to upgrade from CA-less to CA-full or to install the CA service on a replica.
Domain level 0 is not supported anymore.

OPTIONS

-d, --debug Enable debug logging when more verbose output is needed
-p DM_PASSWORD, --password=DM_PASSWORD
Directory Manager (existing master) password
-w ADMIN_PASSWORD, --admin-password=ADMIN_PASSWORD
Admin user Kerberos password used for connection check
--external-ca
Generate a CSR for the IPA CA certificate to be signed by an external CA.
--external-ca-type=TYPE
Type of the external CA. Possible values are "generic", "ms-cs". Default value is "generic". Use "ms-cs" to include the template name required by Microsoft Certificate Services (MS CS) in the generated CSR (see --external-ca-profile for full details).
--external-ca-profile=PROFILE_SPEC
Specify the certificate profile or template to use at the external CA.
When --external-ca-type is "ms-cs" the following specifiers may be used:
<oid>:<majorVersion>[:<minorVersion>]
Specify a certificate template by OID and major version, optionally also specifying minor version.
<name>
Specify a certificate template by name. The name cannot contain any : characters and cannot be an OID (otherwise the OID-based template specifier syntax takes precedence).
default
If no template is specified, the template name "SubCA" is used.
--external-cert-file=FILE
File containing the IPA CA certificate and the external CA certificate chain. The file is accepted in PEM and DER certificate and PKCS#7 certificate chain formats. This option may be used multiple times.
--ca-subject=SUBJECT
The CA certificate subject DN (default CN=Certificate Authority,O=REALM.NAME). RDNs are in LDAP order (most specific RDN first).
--subject-base=SUBJECT
The subject base for certificates issued by IPA (default O=REALM.NAME). RDNs are in LDAP order (most specific RDN first).
--ca-signing-algorithm=ALGORITHM
Signing algorithm of the IPA CA certificate. Possible values are SHA1withRSA, SHA256withRSA, SHA512withRSA. Default value is SHA256withRSA. Use this option with --external-ca if the external CA does not support the default signing algorithm.
--no-host-dns
Do not use DNS for hostname lookup during installation
--skip-conncheck
Skip connection check to remote master
--skip-schema-check
Skip check for updated CA DS schema on the remote master
-U, --unattended
An unattended installation that will never prompt for user input
