Thanks again for the information. Do you recommend a specific RHEL7
minor version which is fully supported and integrated with Idm/IPA ?
FreeIPA is packaged in RHEL as RHEL Identity Management. It is part of
RHEL itself and if you have RHEL subscription, you have support for RHEL
IdM. When RHEL subscription is valid, it applies to all supported RHEL
series but what can be asked for differs by which phase a specific RHEL
version is in.
The following page explains RHEL life cycle phases:
If you are switching to IPA in RHEL, I'd suggest you to look at RHEL 8,
not RHEL 7. RHEL 7 is in maintenance support 2 phase that has a number
of limitations for updates.
