Description Dmitri Pal 2011-08-19 18:16:51 UTC
In the ipa-server-install man page there is no information which command line parameters can be used with which. Some are just for install, some for uninstall, some can be used in both cases.

This bug is to change the man pages to clearly specify what can be used when.

Fixed upstream:
master: https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/changeset/dc3d0f387918b3de2f8e7898408e04e11cc30363
ipa-2-1: https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/changeset/00855b461415945328959d42435a74d98da7f273

Man pages and ipa-server-install, ipa-replica-install options have been reworked (API stays intact) to be more structured and readable.
