Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 800546
[RFE] Move IPA content from /usr/share/ipa to instance-specific place in /var/lib/ipa
Last modified: 2016-02-19 06:57:15 EST
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:
Upcoming planned changes in FHS (file system layout) simplification imply that /usr could become read-only and writable only during RPM operations like install/uninstall/upgrade. We have jar file with browser config generated and signed during the IPA server install. The file is then placed in /usr/share/ipa. This will not work with read-only /usr in Fedora18 or 19.
We need to treat /usr/share/ipa as a template/model content and set up instance-specific version of the files in /var/lib/ipa/ipa-<REALM>. This would be compatible with future FHS changes and also would allow co-existence of multiple IPA instances in future.
Thank you taking your time and submitting this request for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The request was cloned to the upstream tracker long time ago (see link to the upstream ticket above), but it was unfortunately not given a priority neither in the upstream project, nor in Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Given that this request is not planned for a close release, it is highly unlikely it will be fixed in this major version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. We are therefore closing the request as WONTFIX.
To request that Red Hat reconsiders the decision, please reopen the Bugzilla with the help of Red Hat Customer Service and provide additional business and/or technical details about it's importance to you. Please note that you can still track this request or even offer help in the referred upstream Trac ticket to expedite the solution.
