       ipactl - IPA Server Control Interface


       ipactl command


       A tool to help an administer control an IPA environment.

       IPA glues several discrete services together to work in concert and the
       order that these services are started and stopped is important.  ipactl
       ensures that they are started and stopped in the correct order.

       IPA  stores  the  available masters and the services configured on each
       one. The first thing ipactl  does  is  start  (if  it  is  not  already
       running)  the  IPA  389-ds instance to query what services it controls.
       The hostname used in the query needs to match the hostname of the value
       stored  in  LDAP.  This  can  be  controlled  with  the  host option in
       /etc/ipa/default.conf. This should be a fully-qualified hostname.
