ipa-test-config - Generate FreeIPA test configuration for use in Bash scripts


ipa-test-config [options]
ipa-test-config [options] --global
ipa-test-config [options] hostname


The FreeIPA integration test suite is configured by setting environment variables. The
ipa-run-tests command reads these variables and prints detailed configuration for shell-
based scripts to standard output. The default output of ipa-run-tests consists of export
statements that can be sourced by Bash.

If run without arguments, it prints out configuration specific to the local host. Another
host may be specified as an argument, or via the --master, --replica, and --client
options. With the --global option, it prints only configuration that is not specific to
any host.


-h, --help
Print out the command's usage and exit

Output global configuration.

Output configuration for the given domain (environment). May be given as an index
or name. By default, domain 1 is used.

Output configuration for the master

Output configuration for the replica with the given number

Output configuration for the client with the given number

--role Output configuration for the host with the given role.

Do not output Simple Vars. These are normally included for backwards

--yaml Output configuration in YAML format instead of Bash script. This requires the
PyYAML library to be installed.

--json Output configuration in JSON format instead of Bash script.


File-based configuration:

Specifies a file that contains configuration in YAML format,
as given by ipa-test-config --global --yaml.
If given, the other environment variables are ignored.
This requires the PyYAML library to be installed.

Specifies a file that contains configuration in JSON format,
as given by ipa-test-config --global --json.
If given, the other environment variables are ignored.

Domain configuration:
Domain is implicitly defined by _envX suffix of the environment variables,
if either AD_envX or MASTER_envX is defined.

Host configuration:

FQDN of the first IPA server

FQDNs of other IPA servers (space-separated)

FQDNs of IPA clients (space-separated)

$MASTER_env2, $REPLICA_env2, $CLIENT_env2, $MASTER_env3, $AD_env4,...
can be used for additional domains when needed

$AD_env1, $AD_env2, $AD_env3, $AD_env4, ...
can be used to define Active Directory domains. Please note that these
domains are not treated as separate from the IPA domains, so please use an
unique environment suffix for each of your Active Directory domains.

$TESTHOST_<keyword>_env<e>, e.g. $TESTHOST_LEGACY_env1
Defines a host with extra role identified as lowercased <keyword>, e.g.

$BEAKER<role><num>_IP_env<e>, e.g. $BEAKERREPLICA1_IP_env1
the IP address of the given host
Default: resolved via gethostbyname (or DNS if $IPv6SETUP is set)

Basic configuration:

Directory for test data on the remote hosts
Default: /root/ipatests

IP of a DNS forwarder

root password for the remote machines
Used if $IPA_ROOT_SSH_KEY is not set.

name of a file containing the private RSA key for root on the remote machines
Default: ~/.ssh/id_rsa

Test customization:

IPA domain name
Default: taken from $MASTER

NIS domain name
Default: ipatest

NIS domain name
Default: ipatest

Set to TRUE for IPv6-only connectivity

Set to enable test debugging

Admin username
