Description Petr Spacek 2013-09-26 08:25:26 EDT
Description of problem:
Please collect output from following commands (in the ipa module):
ipa-replica-manage -v list
ipa-replica-manage -v list $(hostname)

Actual results:
The output from command `ipa-replica-manage` is missing.

Expected results:
Information about replication topology is included in sosreport.
Comment 2 Bryn M. Reeves 2013-09-26 08:33:22 EDT
Thanks for the report. The utility of this information is clear.

Is there anything in the tool output that we would want to remove? I.e. secrets or tokens that are not of diagnostic value but that could be considered private information?

Would it be possible to paste/attach some sample output to the bug?
Comment 5 Petr Spacek 2013-09-26 09:00:42 EDT
AFAIK there is nothing 'secret', just host names.

$ ipa-replica-manage -v list
vm-192.idm.lab.eng.brq.redhat.com: master
vm-127.idm.lab.eng.brq.redhat.com: master

$ ipa-replica-manage -v list $(hostname)
vm-192.idm.lab.eng.brq.redhat.com: replica
  last init status: 0 Total update succeeded
  last init ended: 2013-09-26 11:19:06+00:00
  last update status: 0 Replica acquired successfully: Incremental update succeeded

Comment 6 Martin Kosek 2013-09-26 09:08:18 EDT
That's true. I am just thinking that ipa-replica-manage command won't run without Kerberos credentials. So if user does not run "kinit someuser" and enters password, ipa-replica-manage will fail to bind to LDAP server and will not collect the information.
Comment 7 Petr Spacek 2013-09-26 09:23:24 EDT
Sosreport runs under root, right? Can we hack it to use SLAPI for Bind?
Comment 8 Martin Kosek 2013-09-26 09:39:05 EDT
Unfortunately not. You can only specify bind DN and password.

You would need to prepare ldapsearches doing LDAPI autobind. To search for replication agreements in given replica. Aren't ldapsearches like this one in sos report already? I am not sure now if we added them or not.

Happy to make changes to capture this information but we'll need to have something that will "just work" for most configurations (or that can take a simple command line parameter that we can document).

The Debian porters added some ldapsearch stuff upstream to their ldap plug-in but this does not address replication afaik:

        ldap_search = "ldapsearch -Q -LLL -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// "

        self.add_cmd_output("ldapsearch -x -b '' -s base 'objectclass=*'")
        self.add_cmd_output(ldap_search + "-b cn=config '(!(objectClass=olcSchemaConfig))'",
        self.add_cmd_output(ldap_search + "-b cn=schema,cn=config dn",
        self.add_cmd_output(ldap_search + "-b cn=config '(olcAccess=*)' olcAccess olcSuffix",
