Release date Released 2013-01-08

The FreeIPA team is proud to announce version FreeIPA v3.1.1.

It can be downloaded from http://www.freeipa.org/page/Downloads.

Highlights in 3.1.1

  • Increase default maxbersize so new replica installs won't fail if the CRL becomes very large.
  • Do not crash in ipa-client-install in DNS discovery when a TXT record was configured, but the referred domain did not contain any Kerberos SRV record.
  • Cookie Expires date should be locale insensitive
  • Enable SSSD on installation in client installs. We had relied on authconfig to enable it but it no longer does so when passed the --enablesssd flag. It just configures SSSD in the PAM stack.


An IPA server can be upgraded simply by installing updated rpms. The server does not need to be shut down in advance.

Please note, that the referential integrity extension requires an extended set of indexes to be configured. RPM update for an IPA server with a excessive number of hosts, SUDO or HBAC entries may require several minutes to finish.

If you have multiple servers you may upgrade them one at a time. It is expected that all servers will be upgraded in a relatively short period (days or weeks not months). They should be able to co-exist peacefully but new features will not be available on old servers and enrolling a new client against an old server will result in the SSH keys not being uploaded.

Downgrading a server once upgraded is not supported.

Upgrading from 2.2.0 is supported. Upgrading from previous versions is not supported and has not been tested.

An enrolled client does not need the new packages installed unless you want to re-enroll it. SSH keys for already installed clients are not uploaded, you will have to re-enroll the client or manually upload the keys.
