IPAv2 2190 beta1

Release date Released Mar 5 2012

The FreeIPA team is proud to announce version 2.1.90 beta 1.This will eventually become FreeIPA v2.2.0.

It can be downloaded from Downloads or from our development repo (http://freeipa.org/downloads/freeipa-devel.repo). Fedora 16 and 17 builds are available.

Builds for Fedora 15 are no longer being provided. Packages that FreeIPA requires are not available in Fedora 15.

Highlights in 2.1.90 beta 1

  • Forms-based login. If Kerberos negotiate authentication fails you have the option of logging in using a form using username and password. Or you can go directly to /ipa/ui/login.html if you do not have/cannot get a Kerberos ticket. This is the preferred alternative login mechanism over enabling KrbMethodK5Passwd.
  • Logout from the UI
  • Support for SSH known-hosts with sssd 1.8.0. This will create a known-hosts file dynamically based on information stored in IPA.
  • DNS forwarders now configurable via IPA
  • Configurable by DNS zone: query policy, transfer policy, forward and reverse synchronization and forward policy.
  • More consistent hostname validation
  • Recommendation that the compat plugin be disabled during migration (unnecessary overhead)
  • On new installations the default users group, ipausers, is now non-POSIX


We tested upgrades from 2.1.4 successfully but this is beta code. We do not recommend upgrading a production server.

Installing updated rpms is all that is required to upgrade from 2.1.4.

It is unlikely that downgrading to a previous release once 2.1.90 is installed will work.

Upgrading directly from the alpha may work but is untested.
