       ipa-replica-conncheck - Check a replica-master network connection before installation


       ipa-replica-conncheck [OPTION]...


       When  an IPA replica is being installed a network connection between a replica machine and
       a replicated IPA master machine has to be prepared for  master-replica  communication.  In
       case  of a flawed connection the installation may fail with inconvenient error messages. A
       common connection problem is a misconfigured firewall  with  closed  required  port  on  a
       replica or master machine.

       The connection is checked by running a set of tests from both master and replica machines.
       The program is incorporated to ipa-replica-install(1) but can be also run separately.


       This set of options is used when the connection check is run on  a  prepared  IPA  replica

       -m MASTER, --master=MASTER
              Remote master machine address

       -a, --auto-master-check
              Automatically  log  in to master machine and execute the master machine part of the
              connection check. The following options for replica part are  only  evaluated  when
              this option is set

       -r REALM, --realm=REALM
              The Kerberos realm name for the IPA server

       -k KDC, --kdc=KDC
              KDC server address. Defaults to MASTER

       -p PRINCIPAL, --principal=PRINCIPAL
              Authorized Kerberos principal to use to log in to master machine. Defaults to admin

       -w PASSWORD, --password=PASSWORD
              Password for given principal. The password will be prompted interactively when this
              option is missing

       This set of options is used when the connection check is run on a master machine against a
       running ipa-replica-conncheck(1) on a replica machine.

       -R REPLICA, --replica=REPLICA
              Remote replica machine address

       -c, --check-ca
              Include  in  a check also a set of dogtag connection requirements. Only needed when
              the master was installed with Dogtag 9 or lower.

       -h HOSTNAME, --hostname=HOSTNAME
              The hostname of this server (FQDN). By default the result of  getfqdn()  call  from
              Python's socket module is used.

       -d, --debug
              Print debugging information

       -q, --quiet
              Output only errors


       ipa-replica-conncheck -m
              Run  a replica machine connection check against a remote master
              If the connection to the remote master  machine  is  successful  the  program  will
              switch to listening mode and prompt for running the master machine part. The second
              part check the connection from master to replica.

       ipa-replica-conncheck -R
              Run a master machine connection check part. This is  either  run  automatically  by
              replica part of the connection check program (when -a option is set) or manually by
              the user. A running ipa-replica-conncheck(1) in a listening mode  must  be  already
              running on a replica machine.

       ipa-replica-conncheck -m -a -r EXAMPLE.COM -w password
              Run  a  replica-master  connection  check. In case of a success switch to listening
              mode, automatically log  to  in  a  realm  EXAMPLE.COM  with  a
              password password and run the second part of the connection check.


       0 if the connection check was successful

       1 if an error occurred
