Release date Released 2013-06-07

The FreeIPA team is proud to announce FreeIPA v3.2.1.

It can be downloaded from http://www.freeipa.org/page/Downloads. The new version has also been built for Fedora 19 and is on its way to updates-testing.

Important: please see section Upgrading before upgrading the packages, a manual procedure is needed for FreeIPA servers with CA originally installed with FreeIPA version prior to 3.1.

Highlights in 3.2.1

New features for 3.2.1

  • dnszone-add command now interactively prompts user when it needs IP address of a name server instead of failing in the server phase
  • Improved debugging level of DNS dynamic update in ipa-client-install (see ipaclient-install.log)
  • Support multiple local domain ID ranges with RID base set

Bug fixes

  • Directory Server CLDAP responder now returns a result in all cases to avoid timeouts or freezes with Windows DC or other tools probing this interface.
  • User passwords may contain non-ASCII characters again
  • Missing Web UI HBAC Test tab is returned back in the UI menu
  • Manual Web UI configuration page for other browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer 10) is fixed
  • Removal of ID range of an active trust is no longer allowed
  • ... and many others stabilization fixes, see Detailed changelog for full details


FreeIPA servers with CA installed prior to version 3.1

Manual upgrade procedure is required for FreeIPA servers installed with version prior to 3.1.

Other FreeIPA servers and clients

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

Due to changes related to OCSP/CRL URI fix [1], ipa-ca.DOMAIN DNS name is automatically converted from a set of CNAMEs to a set of A/AAAA records pointing to FreeIPA servers with CA configured.

FreeIPA servers installed with the --selfsign option will be converted to CA-less. See the section above titled "Dropped --selfsign option".

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 and later versions 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.
