A few days ago we found out that two out of our eight servers do not
work as they should. On both of them pki-tomcatd refuses to start. The
two servers are ipa2 and ipa6 - both have the CA feature installed.
Additionally, on ipa6 configuration is not replicated to the other
servers. ipa2 seems to have even more problems. kinit does not work,
neither does the WebGUI.
My first question is addressed to Rob. Is ipa-healthcheck checking the
whole IPA server landscape or does it check only the server where the
command is issued?
AFAIK, ipa-healthcheck only evaluates the single machine. You need to
run it on each system to produce a report for that system. There are
plans to be able to run on multiple machines and combine the report
together but there is no tests that use the reports from individual
What would probably be the best way to make these two servers work
normal again? (I am thinking of just ripping these two servers out of
the topology and setting them up from scratch again?)
It heavily depends on what are the problems. Removing a replica is
always a hammer but if you don't want to investigate it, sure.
