ipa_config – Manage Global FreeIPA Configuration Settings

New in version 2.7.

Synopsis

  • Modify global configuration settings of a FreeIPA Server.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
ipa_host
string
Default:
"ipa.example.com"
IP or hostname of IPA server.
If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable IPA_HOST will be used instead.
If both the environment variable IPA_HOST and the value are not specified in the task, then DNS will be used to try to discover the FreeIPA server.
The relevant entry needed in FreeIPA is the 'ipa-ca' entry.
If neither the DNS entry, nor the environment IPA_HOST, nor the value are available in the task, then the default value will be used.
Environment variable fallback mechanism is added in Ansible 2.5.
ipa_pass
string / required
Password of administrative user.
If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable IPA_PASS will be used instead.
Note that if the 'urllib_gssapi' library is available, it is possible to use GSSAPI to authenticate to FreeIPA.
If the environment variable KRB5CCNAME is available, the module will use this kerberos credentials cache to authenticate to the FreeIPA server.
If the environment variable KRB5_CLIENT_KTNAME is available, and KRB5CCNAME is not; the module will use this kerberos keytab to authenticate.
If GSSAPI is not available, the usage of 'ipa_pass' is required.
Environment variable fallback mechanism is added in Ansible 2.5.
ipa_port
integer
Default:
443
Port of FreeIPA / IPA server.
If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable IPA_PORT will be used instead.
