Doc Text:
When DNS support is being added for an Identity Management server (for example, by using the ipa-dns-install or by using the --setup-dns flag in ipa-server-install or ipa-replica-install), the script adds a hostname of a new Identity Management DNS server to the list of name servers in the primary Identity Management DNS zone (via DNS NS record). However, it does not add the DNS name server record to other DNS zones served by the Identity Management. As a consequence, the list of name servers in the non-primary DNS zones has only a limited set of Identity Management name servers serving the DNS zone (only one, without user intervention). When the limited set of Identity Management name servers is not available, these DNS zones are not resolvable. To work around this problem, manually add new DNS name server records to all non-primary DNS zones when a new Identity Management replica is being added. Also manually remove such DNS name server records when the replica is being decommissioned. Non-primary DNS zones can maintain higher availability by having a manually maintained set of Identity Management name servers serving it.

Description Martin Kosek 2013-09-04 06:16:05 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:
https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/3343

''ipa-replica-install --setup-dns'' adds NS record pointing to the new replica only to some DNS zones. NS record should be added to *all* existing zones managed by IPA.

There is no redundancy without proper NS records.
