Description of problem:
https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7/html/Linux_Domain_Identity_Authentication_and_Policy_Guide/index.html, section 6.2. Migrating the IdM Server to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, skips a crucial step.

step 2 has the yum install on the new/rhel7 server, and the next step on the new server (ignoring the schema export) is ipa-replica-install, which does connection testing. Unfortunately, nowhere does it mention that the firewall needs to be configured to open ports for the connection tests from the existing master to the new replica.

Revision 7.0-10

Sorry, didn't see this lower section when originally submitting bug..

Document URL: 

Section Number and Name: 
6.2. Migrating the IdM Server to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7

Describe the issue: 

Suggestions for improvement: 
Add a step at least mentioning which ports need to be opened, if not actually showing firewall-cmd/iptables commands for rules.
