Anybody running their freeipa / IDM cluster on a 100% virtualized
environment? We are running the full stack - DNS, ldap, Certs etc and I’m wondering if we
can run it all on a VM environment. My concern is the chicken/egg scenario in case of a
full DC recovery. Thoughts? Thanks.
We do, kinda. In our Cultural Heritage Cluster, our FreeIPA server (only
one at the moment) is in vmware vsphere, all other servers in the
cluster (apart from the datanodes of course) are on oVirt(which I can
recommend). Nothing in vmware or oVirt is dependent on FreeIPA, so there
will be no chicken and egg scenario.
All we have to do in a full DR is to reestablish the NFS servers that
holds the vm images and then we can start up the VM's. These NFS servers
are backed up by a backup system that is also not dependent on FreeIPA
or even DNS.
