Current progress

We initially began development of the new v2 components outside of our main repository. These have since been re-integrated for the server and the new client code will remain separate.

To checkout the code, use the git clone repository_url. Please note that these repositories changing rapidly and may not always be buildable.

IPA Server

The server using the new XML-RPC framework. This is the same repository as the V1 code. All work for V2 has been done in the master branch.

Test Repository

With the release of alpha 1 we have created a yum repository that contains the Fedora 11 x86 and x86_64 binaries. To use this repository retrieve the file:


IPA Client

The client components.


DNS integration

Dynamic loading of DLZ drivers

This is a patch allowing BIND to dynamically load DLZ drivers. Without the patch, drivers need to be compiled into BIND. We aim to get this feature upstream as soon as possible.

Code will be available soon.

IPA LDAP driver

Code will be available soon.

BIND DLZ write-back support patch

No code available at the moment.


The documentation is still work in progress. Here is the progress so far:

Provides detailed information about IPA, the technologies with which it works, and some of the terminology used to describe it. It also provides high-level design information for both the IPA client and server.
