Description Dmitri Pal 2012-07-31 18:53:40 EDT
Sometimes there is a desire to change a hostname of a IdM server.
The procedure should look like this:

1) Set up a new replica (with a CA configured) with the new hostname/IP
2) Shut down the old IPA server
3) Verify that everything works as expected both on server and clients
4) Uninstall the old IPA server

There is nothing better than that as changing all the names in the kerberos keys and certs will be a nightmare.

Mass closure. These bugs were live in RHEL 6.5.
