ipa-kra-install - Man Page

Install a KRA on a server


ipa-kra-install [OPTION]...


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

The KRA (Key Recovery Authority) is a component used to securely store secrets such as passwords, symmetric keys and private asymmetric keys.  It is used as the back-end repository for the IPA Password Vault.

Domain level 0 is not supported anymore.

ipa-kra-install can be used to add KRA to the existing CA, or to install the KRA service on a replica.

KRA can only be removed along with the entire server using ipa-server-install --uninstall.
