NAME¶ipa-replica-prepare - Create an IPA replica file
SYNOPSIS¶ipa-replica-prepare [OPTION]... hostname
DESCRIPTION¶Generates a replica file that may be used with ipa-replica-install to create a replica of an IPA server.
A replica can be created on any IPA master or replica server.
You must provide the fully-qualified hostname of the machine you want to install the replica on and a host-specific replica_file will be created. It is host-specific because SSL server certificates are generated as part of the process and they are specific to a particular hostname.
If IPA manages the DNS for your domain, you should either use the --ip-address option or add the forward and reverse records manually using IPA plugins.
Once the file has been created it will be named replica-hostname. This file can then be moved across the network to the target machine and a new IPA replica setup by running ipa-replica-install replica-hostname.
Limitations¶A replica should only be installed on the same or higher version of IPA on the remote system.
A replica with PKI can only be installed from a replica file prepared on a master with PKI.
- File containing the Directory Server SSL certificate and private key. The files are accepted in PEM and DER certificate, PKCS#7 certificate chain, PKCS#8 and raw private key and PKCS#12 formats. This option may be used multiple times.
- File containing the Apache Server SSL certificate and private key. The files are accepted in PEM and DER certificate, PKCS#7 certificate chain, PKCS#8 and raw private key and PKCS#12 formats. This option may be used multiple times.

- IPv4 or IPv6 address of the replica server. This option can be specified multiple times for each interface of the server (e.g. multihomed and/or dualstacked server), or for each IPv4 and IPv6 address of the server. The corresponding A or AAAA and PTR records will be added to the DNS if they do not exist already.
