ipa-restore - Restore an IPA master


ipa-restore [OPTION]... BACKUP


Only the name of the backup needs to be passed in, not the full path. Backups are stored in a subdirectory in /var/lib/ipa/backup. If a backup is in another location then the full path must be provided.


The restoration on other masters needs to be done carefully, to match the replication topology, working outward from the restored master. For example, if your topology is A <-> B <-> C and you restored master A you would restore B first, then C.
