Description Arpit Tolani 2016-08-16 20:08:09 UTC
Description of problem:
ipa help config-mod doesnt have all options documented

While trying to do ipa migrate-ds, It fails with an error.

# ipa migrate-ds ldap://rhds9-1.gsslab.pnq.redhat.com:389
Migration mode is disabled. Use 'ipa config-mod' to enable it.

but ipa config-mod doesnt have any documentation about Migration option.

# ipa help config-mod |grep -i migrate
-- No Output --

Below commands works well, but this option should be documented.
# ipa config-mod --enable-migration=TRUE

Additional info:
It is properly documented in https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7/html/Linux_Domain_Identity_Authentication_and_Policy_Guide/Migrating_from_a_Directory_Server_to_IPA-Performing_a_Client_based_Migration.html

I think it should be documented in help page of ipa config-mod

Comment 2 Petr Spacek 2016-08-22 06:42:07 UTC
The grep was incorrect in the first place but we should improve the error message as well:
It should mention "ipa config-mod --enable-migration=TRUE".

Upstream ticket:

Comment 4 Martin Bašti 2016-08-22 16:01:07 UTC
Fixed upstream

Comment 6 Nikhil Dehadrai 2017-06-02 11:44:18 UTC
ipa-version: ipa-server-4.5.0-13.el7.x86_64

Verified that on running following command we can get information for migration task:

#ipa help config-mod 

--enable-migration=BOOL  Enable migration mode

Thus marking the status of bug to "VERIFIED".
