= Proposed Self Contained Change: Domain Controller Server Role = 

Change owner(s):  Stephen Gallagher, Simo Sorce - 
<server at lists.fedoraproject.org>
Responsible WG: Server

The Fedora Server Product will provide a standard deployment mechanism for a 
Linux Domain Controller (powered by the FreeIPA project). 

== Detailed Description ==
The Fedora Server will be shipped with a role-deployment mechanism. One such 
role will be to act as a primary or replica Domain Controller for the Linux 
machines in the network.

This will be implemented by taking advantage of the FreeIPA project, packaging 
it up within the Server Role Framework and enabling it to be deployed through 
the mechanisms described in the Server Role Infrastructure Change Proposal 

== Scope ==
* Proposal owners:
** FreeIPA and the optional CA and DNS components need to be packaged 
appropriately for use with the Server Role Infrastructure.
** A D-BUS API plugin needs to be written and tested to support deployment and 
monitoring of the Domain Controller Role.

* Other developers:
** None

* Release engineering:
** Pre-loading roles will need to be a capability of the Anaconda install 
system, both in the graphical installer and kickstart

* Policies and guidelines:
** Packaging guidelines for this Change should be inherited from the Server 
Role Infrastructure Change Proposal.
