ipa-ca-install — Install a CA on a server

Synopsis

ipa-ca-install [OPTION]... [replica_file]

Description

Adds a CA as an IPA-managed service. This requires that the IPA server is already installed and configured.

The replica_file is created using the ipa-replica-prepare utility and should be the same one used when originally installing the replica.

Alternatively, you can run ipa-ca-install without replica_file to upgrade from CA-less to CA-full.

Options

-d, --debug
Enable debug logging when more verbose output is needed
-p DM_PASSWORD, --password=DM_PASSWORD
Directory Manager (existing master) password

--ca-signing-algorithm=ALGORITHM
Signing algorithm of the IPA CA certificate. Possible values are SHA1withRSA, SHA256withRSA, SHA512withRSA. Default value is SHA256withRSA. Use this option with --external-ca if the external CA does not support the default signing algorithm.
