Related FreeIPA ticket that needs to be backported:

Comment 2 Martin Kosek 2015-10-23 19:55:45 UTC
https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/5360 has to be also backported - fails the upgrade too.

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2015-11-02 00:05:54 UTC
This seems to be a major, major problem :/ should've been at least evaluated as a release blocker: you can't upgrade a Fedora Server running a supported role.

Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2015-11-02 00:44:06 UTC
This seems to be a complete nightmare to recover from. After hand-editing dse.ldif to drop the 'SUP ipaPublicKey' - running the upgrade script a second time after patching that problem adds the EQUALITY but doesn't drop the SUP - I got a bit further, but now it seems like nothing from https://fedorahosted.org/pki/ticket/1264#comment:1 has been applied on my system; all those changes are missing from /etc/pki/pki-tomcat/server.xml , so I hit that "java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.catalina.core.JasperListener" error.

At this point my FreeIPA server is more or less toast, which is obviously not good at all. I upgraded from 21 to 23 using dnf system-upgrade.

Comment 5 Adam Williamson 2015-11-02 01:11:32 UTC
Upgrades also encounter this:


To do the Tomcat 8 migration manually, do:

pki-server migrate --tomcat 8

After manually fixing up the LDAP upgrade problem and running the Tomcat migration, my server seems to be more or less working again, but something seems to be causing Apache to make 'execmem' calls, which is forbidden by SELinux policy by default, and should not be necessary. I had to do "setsebool -P httpd_execmem 1" for now. Does anyone know what would be causing that?
